Kate Mackenzie Jackup rig costs: Holding up?

Rigzone has looked at the state of jackup rigs in 2009, and put together a nifty chart comparing it to the previous year (in the second column):

Notice that the figures relating to prices for jackup services haven’t changed that much, particularly in comparison with the price of oil itself, and the number of new and cold stacked jackups. So energy prices were down, demand was down, but prices remained relatively resilient – despite all the focus on savings from big oil companies.
