Seadrill adds two more jackup orders to growing construction program

Seadrill is adding to the company’s already significant newbuild construction program with the announcement that the company have ordered two further ‘high-specification’ jackup rigs to be constructed at the Dalian shipyard in China. The order comes a month after the company placed a similar order at the shipyard, as it looks to capitalise on the increasing global demand for new ‘high-specification’ rigs. Both units are being built to the Friede & Goldman JU-2000E design at a cost of US$230m apiece, with the deliveries due in Q2 and Q3 2016. The deal means that Seadrill now have ten jackups currently on order at the yard, with two due for delivery in 2013, five in 2015 and three in 2016.
