Lamprell delivers newbuild jackup to NDC

Lamprell, a leading provider of fabrication, engineering and contracting services to the onshore and offshore energy industry, announces the completion of construction on a further jackup drilling rig, the Al Shuwehat, and its delivery to Abu Dhabi’s National Drilling Company (“NDC”), safely, within budget and as scheduled. This follows the recent announcement on 12th November when the Group received a new contract award from NDC for the construction of two further jackup drilling rigs of a similar design and high specification, which is valued at approximately USD365 million. The contract for the Al Shuwehat rig was signed in April 2012 and this is the fifth in a series of eight rigs with the LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) Class design which are being built and delivered by Lamprell to NDC. This latest rig has been delivered to the client following the completion of the third and fourth rigs, the Qarnin and the Marawwah respectively, earlier this year. Lamprell has achieved another Company record with the delivery of three drilling units to one client in a single year. The Al Shuwehat rig is the 11th Super 116E jackup drilling unit that the Group has delivered to various clients during the last six years. The jackup rig was officially named, and completion marked, at a ceremony held at Lamprell’s Hamriyah facility in the United Arab Emirates earlier today, prior to departure for operations at its drilling location in Abu Dhabi.
