Keppel to build jackup in Kazkhstan

Teniz Burgylau LLP (Teniz) and a consortium consisting of Keppel Kazakhstan LLP and ERSAI Caspian Contractor LLP have signed a contract for the turnkey construction of the first self-elevating floating drilling rig to be built in Kazakhstan. The project for the construction of Kazakhstan’s FDR is one of the breakthrough innovative projects in the country. The project documentation developed by Keppel FELS Ltd. was agreed with the authorized bodies of the RK and classification societies: American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RMRS). FDR’s systems are designed for the use in corrosive environments and in the presence of hydrogen sulfide. The project provides for compliance with SFAS zero discharge, that is, a complete ban on discharges into the marine environment of wastes resulting from industrial activity, so that all waste will be collected and transported in sealed containers to shore for treatment and disposal. The project is implemented by Teniz and supported by the National Company KazMunaiGaz. Construction of the FDR will take place at Keppel’s shipyard in the Mangistau region, involving up to 1,000 people and will be completed in the first quarter of 2015. The first jackup drilling rig to be built in Kazkhstan will be designed to operate in water depths from 5-80m.
