Keppel delivers sixth jack-up rig to Borr Drilling

KFELS Super B Class jackup rig Hild.jpg
Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) has delivered its sixth jack-up rig newbuild to Borr Drilling.

The jack-up rig Hild was delivered by Keppel O&M subsidiary Keppel FELS and built to its KFELS B Design. It is the second such rig the yard has delivered to Borr Drilling this year.

It is the sixth of 11 newbuild jack-up rigs Borr Drilling has on order at Keppel.

A relative newcomer to the rig market established by former John Fredriksen right hand man Tor Olav Troim and bought up a number of rig newbuildings terminated by other customers after the collapse in the oil price and the offshore drilling market.

Following this delivery, Borr Drilling will have nine KFELS B Class and two KFELS A Class rigs in their fleet.
