The Randolph Yost, a jackup rig contracted by Furie Operating Alaska, is currently docked in the Port of Homer and the city is making $1,000 per day in dockage fees. The port provided similar services to another rig in 2012, but in the process a set of rules the state created to protect Kachemak Bay were broken.

The city of Homer is expecting a drill rig with the exploration company Furie to pull into the port Saturday. The city will host the rig after another company that parked a jackup rig in Homer went bankrupt and demanded contractors that serviced the rig pay them back.
