As of 31 March 2010, the net book value for ENSCO 57 was approximately $30 million. The rig will be reclassified as discontinued operations on Ensco’s financial statements as of second quarter 2010. 

Chief Financial Officer Jay Swent commented, "The sale of ENSCO 57, along with two other jackup rigs earlier this year, is part of our long-established strategy of high-grading our fleet by investing in newer equipment and divesting selected assets.
