Just how bad was it?


The year 2020 has to be one of the toughest and most challenging for the offshore rig market. 

After starting on a high with the knowledge that the previous oil price crash was now well and truly in the past, demand, dayrates, and utilization were all showing healthy improvement.

Presented with no further comment, here's our summary of the year gone by.
