PV Drilling places new jackup order with Keppel FELS

PV Drilling has placed an order for a new jackup rig at Keppel FELS shipyard in Singapore. The order is for a Keppel FELS B class jackup capable of operating in 400ft of water and drilling down to 30,000ft with delivery by the end of Q1 2015 for a total price of US$210 million. The unit when delivered will be the fourth jackup rig operated by PV Drilling as the company looks to increase its exposure to its domestic drilling market in Vietnam. All three of PV Drilling’s existing jackup rigs have been constructed by Keppel and this order could be followed by another later in the year.
