Keppel FELS delivers 9th jackup for ENSCO

Keppel FELS Limited (Keppel FELS) has delivered ENSCO 108, its ninth jackup rig for ENSCO International Inc (ENSCO) on schedule, within budget and with zero loss time incidents. Of this outstanding achievement, Mr Choo Chiau Beng, Chairman & CEO of Keppel Offshore & Marine, said, “Construction of ENSCO 108 was a true mark of the efficiency and precision in project design, management and execution. “ENSCO has been a tremendous supporter of our proprietary designs, and ENSCO 108 is the seventh consecutive rig of the premium KFELS design that we have been commissioned to build since 1999. We are very honoured that ENSCO has entrusted us time and again with delivering some of the most advanced premium offshore rigs in their fleet.” ENSCO 108 was named by Lady Sponsor, Mrs Marcia Hunzeker at a ceremony at Keppel FELS on 24 March 2007. Mrs Hunzeker is wife of Mr Russ Hunzeker, Drilling and Completions Manager of BP Tanguh. ENSCO 108 is built to Keppel’s proprietary KFELS B Class jackup rig design. She is expected to depart the Keppel FELS’ yard in April on her maiden assignment in Indonesia for BP.
