 HOUSTON, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Reading & Bates Corporation (NYSE: RB) announced today that it had completed a sale and leaseback of its Marathon LeTourneau 116-C class jack-up rig "W.T. Adams" currently operating in Abu Dhabi. The buyer was Dorado Offshore Limited Partnership and the sales price was $28 million. Reading & Bates will continue to operate and market the rig under a bareboat charter agreement for 42 months with Dorado.

Arcade Shipping owns approximately 46 percent of Arcade Drilling, and Arcade Drilling owns the two fourth generation semisubmersibles, "HENRY GOODRICH" and "ARCADE FRONTIER."
