Keppel Fels add to order book with jackup order from Jindal Drilling

Jindal Drilling has announced that the company has signed off on the construction of a new Keppel FELS B Class jackup rig to be built in Singapore for delivery in Q4 2014. The order follows the successful construction and delivery of the ‘Discovery-1’ and ‘Virtue-1’ jackups that Jindal Drilling received from Keppel in 2008. Once completed the unit will be Jindal Drilling’s fifth jackup rig after the contractor receives two units it currently has under construction at Lamprell’s yard in the UAE. The order signals the company’s intention to enhance its presence in the Indian offshore rig market as well as the increasing demand for high specification units.
