Jurong bags rig orders

Singapore: Sembcorp Marine's subsidiary Jurong Shipyard (JSPL) has secured orders of US$384 million for two turnkey jack-up rigs with options for another four jack-up rigs from Seadrill. The total estimated value of the six jack-up rigs, including the four jack-up rig options is expected to surpass the US$1 billion mark. This contract with Seadrill will be the largest order of rigs to-date, reflecting the growing market segment for quality premium high specification jack-up rigs.?Scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013 respectively, the jack-up rigs represent the latest generation, high specification jack-up drilling rigs with greater capacities and capabilities than current conventional units. These rigs will be built based on the Friede & Goldman JU2000E design and are suitable for operations world-wide, including the southern North Sea. On completion, these new rigs will be capable of operating in waters of 400 feet and drill to depths of 30,000 feet. They will offer improved drilling efficiencies with off-line pipe handling, simultaneous operations support and are equipped with increased accommodation capacity. [19/10/10]
