UAE-based shipyard Lamprell expects to win major upgrade work for three jack-up rigs.

Lamprell said it was engaged with an international rig operator for the work on three jack-up rigs prior to their deployment in the Middle East region.

The first of the rigs is expected to arrive at Lamprell’s Hamriyah yard this month, with the other two to follow later at unspecified date.

"Our rig refurbishment activities are a mainstay for our oil & gas business unit; having an excellent reputation for delivery,” said Christopher McDonald, CEO of Lamprell. 

“Over the last twelve months we have seen increasing demand in this business segment evidenced through the awards of drilling contracts by regional operators.  The entire team looks forward to delivering the upgrades safely and on time for our client."
