The estimated range for reactivation costs for cold-stacked floaters is anywhere from $25mil to $70mil with approx. 50% of the cost emanating from the commissioning of major equipment including de-preservation and reinstallation with ancillary services (crew, shipyard and logistics etc.) accounting for the remaining 50%. Inevitably, even with the best-laid plans, problems will occur and delays will be experienced so it is important to develop an integrated reactivation plan that considers everything from classification, crewing, compliance and operability assurance (incl. endurance testing).
