This follows the redelivery of their first jackup rig of the same design, in Ukraine in May this year. Built to Keppel's proprietary KFELS B Class design, this second jackup rig will be deployed on the Ukrainian shelf of the Black Sea for its owner Chernomornaftogaz. According to Ukraine's official estimates in 2011, the country boasts proven reserves of natural gas (1200 billion cubic meters) and oil and gas condensate (220 million tons). The rig was named NEZALEZHNIST (which means independence in Ukrainian), at Keppel FELS today with Mr Evgen Bakulin, Chairman of the Board of Ukraine's National Joint-Stock Company, Naftogaz, as the Guest of Honour.
