Another “Bully” at Keppel heralds growing drillship business for the yard

Keppel Shipyard Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine Limited (Keppel O&M) has been awarded a contract valued at about SGD 145 million for the integration and completion of a new build “Bully” drillship. Keppel secured the contract with a company jointly owned by Frontier Drilling and Shell. This is the second drillship of the “Bully” rig design awarded to Keppel by the same owners. The first “Bully” drillship was awarded in June 2007 with delivery by fourth quarter 2009. The new hull will be built in China and is due to arrive at Keppel Shipyard in the first quarter of 2009. The drillship is expected to be delivered by the second quarter of 2010.
