The rig is scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2015 and it will be deployed in Dagny field in the Norwegian North Sea for Statoil.
This is the third jackup rig that Keppel FELS is building for Maersk Drilling, following an order for two similar rigs in February 2011.
“Maersk Drilling already operates six ultra-harsh environment jackup rigs in Norway, and the addition of three more high specification units will further solidify our stronghold in this attractive market,” said Claus V Hemmingsen, ceo of Maersk Drilling and member of the executive board of the AP Moller-Maersk Group.
