Keppel AmFELS repeats on track delivery for Scorpion’s second rig

Keppel AmFELS Inc., the US wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine Limited (Keppel O&M), has delivered its second jackup drilling rig for Scorpion Offshore (Scorpion) on time and within budget. The delivery of Offshore Defender comes just five months after Keppel AmFELS completed its first jackup rig for Scorpion earlier this year. A newly established drilling company, Scorpion has contracted Keppel AmFELS to build a fleet of five drilling rigs. Construction of the remaining three is progressing well on track, and the rigs are scheduled for delivery through 2008 to 2009.
