Keppel delivers final AOD jackup rig 'AOD III'

Asia Offshore Drilling (AOD) has received the company’s third and final jackup rig the ‘AOD III’ from Keppel FELS shipyard in Singapore where the unit was constructed. The ‘AOD III’ unit is the final rig of a three unit premium jackup order placed by AOD in October 2010 with Keppel. The unit will now mobilise to the Middle East and undergo shipyard modifications before beginning its inaugural drilling contract with Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia. All three of the AOD jackup rigs are being managed by Seadrill after the rig operator purchased a controlling stake in the company in April 2013.
