Dalian: Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore (CIMC Raffles) has secured an order from Central Shipping Monaco (CSM) to build two units of Friede & Goldman JU2000E jackup drilling rigs. The two rigs are scheduled to be delivered at the end of 2015. In addition, CSM has options to build up to another four similar jackup rigs with CIMC Raffles.
The F&G JU2000E rigs can operate in water depths of 400 feet, and drilling depths up to 35,000 feet.
CSM is a relatively new fast growing tanker and offshore player with strong ambitions to bolster its fleet in the coming months. [13/01/14]
