Lamprell delivers 'Qarnin' jackup to National Drilling Company (NDC)

Lamprell (ticker: LAM), a leading provider of diversified engineering and contracting services to the onshore and offshore energy industry, announces the completion of construction on the jackup drilling rig, “Qarnin”, and its delivery to Abu Dhabi’s National Drilling Company (‘NDC’). Completion and delivery of the jackup rig, on time and on budget, was marked at a ceremony held at Lamprell’s Hamriyah facility in the UAE on 13 February. The rig will depart the facility late February en route to its drilling location in Abu Dhabi. The contract for the NDC “Qarnin” rig was signed in October 2011 and this is the third rig in a series of six identical rigs being built and delivered by Lamprell to NDC. All six rigs have been or will be designed according to the Cameron LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) Class design. “Qarnin” rig now joins its sister rigs, ‘Makasib’ which was delivered by Lamprell to NDC in July 2012 and ‘Muhaiyimat’ which was delivered in December 2012. The remaining three rigs are all proceeding on schedule and will be delivered as planned in 2014/15. With the delivery of ‘Qarnin’ rig, Lamprell has now delivered a total of 20 new build jackup rigs, and its eighth Super 116E jackup drilling unit to various clients during the last six years.
