When a rig shuts down it enters the first stage of being "stacked".
After only 2 weeks of being shut down - the rig should have had at least a crew of engineers taking samples from equipment that can only be done when
I send equipment to Transocean and BP rigs for oil sampling from machinery like cranes, gearboxes etc..
(would just like to point out that I only work with rigs in europe and the middle east)
