United Arab Emirates-based fabricator Lamprell has been awarded a major rig conversion contract from BW Energy.
The scope of work involves the conversion of BWE’s Hibiscus Alpha jackup rig into an offshore production facility.
Christopher McDonald, Lamprell CEO, said: “Lamprell offers many decades of experience executing such work scopes and we look forward to working with our client to deliver a first-class asset safely over the coming months.”
This medium-sized project, which Lamprell defines as being worth between $6m and $50m, will be executed by the company’s oil & gas business unit. The project will commence immediately and is scheduled for completion in 2022.
