Ensco places order for new ENSCO 140 series jackups

Ensco plc (Ensco) has announced that it has ordered two new jackup rigs with the intention of targeting new drilling contracts in the Middle East market. Ensco has placed an order for the construction of the ‘ENSCO 140’ and ‘ENSCO 141’. Both units are enhanced versions of LeTourneau’s Super-116E jackup design and have been ordered from Lamprell’s shipyards in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with delivery of the first unit expected in mid-2016. Ensco has designed the units to meet the majority of customer requirements in the Middle East, which is the primary target market for the two units. Both units will be built initially to operate in 340ft of water, with the option to upgrade the operational depth to 400ft and will be capable of drilling down to maximum depths of 30,000ft. The total construction price for the ‘ENSCO 140’ and ‘ENSCO 141’ is a combined US$430 million, or US$215 million per rig. The construction contract also includes options for two additional rigs of similar design.
