Gulf Drilling orders at Keppel FELS

Singapore: Keppel FELS announced that it has secured contracts to build two jackup rigs from returning customer Gulf Drilling International (GDI) of Qatar, worth about $393m.

The contracts follow closely after Keppel FELS was awarded a newbuild jackup rig contract by one of GDI's shareholders, Japan Drilling Company, in March this year.

Scheduled for delivery in the third quarters of 2015 and 2016, the two latest rigs mark GDI's first new orders in six years, and will increase the company's jackup fleet count to seven units. [17/09/14]
