Lamprell delivers newbuild jackup to Jindal

Lamprell Plc (“Lamprell”), a leading provider of fabrication, engineering and contracting services to the onshore and offshore energy industry, has announced the completion of construction on the jackup rig Jindal Pioneer and its delivery to Dev Drilling Pte Ltd of Singapore, a D. P. Jindal Group Company, on time and within budget. The contract for the Jindal Pioneer rig was signed in January 2013 and this is the second rig with the LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) Class design which Lamprell has delivered to this client. This latest rig has been delivered following the completion of the first rig, the Jindal Star which successfully sailed away from Lamprell’s Hamriyah facility in Q4 2013 and is currently deployed in the Bombay high oilfield, run by India's Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), offshore India. The Jindal Pioneer rig was officially named, and completion was marked, at a ceremony held at Lamprell’s Hamriyah facility in the United Arab Emirates in January. This rig is the 12th Super 116E jackup drilling unit that the Group has delivered to various clients during the last seven years. The Group currently has seven new build jackup rigs under construction at its Hamriyah facility and the construction of the further two new build jackup rigs recently awarded by another client are due to start shortly. Raghav Jindal, Managing Director, Dev Drilling Pte Ltd., commented: “The D.P. Jindal group continues to stride ahead in the upstream sector with the delivery of the “Jindal Pioneer”. This LeTourneau Super 116E rig is the second rig of its kind and the fifth new generation rig in our expanding fleet of high specification jack ups. We are confident that she will earn many laurels for the group in the coming decades and look forward to strengthening our relationship with Lamprell over the coming years with more advanced and versatile rig designs.”
