Viking Offshore & Marine order newbuild jackup to mark entry into offshore rig market

Viking Offshore & Marine Ltd, a Singapore based offshore contractor has announced its intention to enter the offshore drilling rig market by placing an order for a newbuild jackup rig at China Merchant Heavy Industries (CMHI) shipyard in Shenzen, China. The newbuild order is for a Gusto MSC CJ46-X-100-D designed jackup rig, which is expected to cost a total of US$180 million to construct with delivery due in early 2016. Viking has teamed up with Chan Kwan Bian and Tan Boy Tee in order to bring some rig building knowledge to the project as the two individuals were previously the co-founders of Labroy Marine which they sold to Dubai Drydocks World in 2008. Viking plans to charter the unit to some of its existing clients in South East Asia upon delivery or alternatively could look to resell the unit.
