Singapore: Keppel has secured a contract to build a repeat KFELS Super A Class harsh environment jackup rig from a subsidiary of Ensco for around $265m.
Scheduled for delivery in mid-2016, it will be the fourth ENSCO 120 Series jackup rig that Ensco has ordered from Keppel FELS since 2011. As part of the contract, Ensco has an option to order another similar rig.
"When developing a new series of rigs, we believe in choosing a winning design and standardising it to achieve greater efficiencies. Having looked at shipyards around the world, we have always come back to Keppel over the years because of their ability to consistently provide industry-leading rig designs in a timely and reliable manner," said Dan Rabun, chairman and ceo of Ensco.
