It's not the Sedco 703, it's the Sedco 709. The Sedco 703, had 4 thrusters, two aft and 2 forward. This rig is obviously a DP rig, because of the extra thrusters which can be seen aft. Plus the cranes are not National cranes, which the Sedco 703 had. I know this because I started offshore in 1978, on the Sedco 703.

Hi Glenn,

Great shot of this interesting super-barge.

She used to be the 150.000 dwt FPSO "Nan Hai Xi Wang".

Best regards
Mats
