Seadrill continues newbuild expansion with orders for two 400ft jackup rigs

Seadrill has ordered a further two newbuild jackup rigs from Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China at a cost of US$230 million each. The two newbuild units are options that Seadrill has exercised from the order of two similar jackup rigs that the company placed with the yard in January 2013, with the two units both being based on the Friede & Goldman JU-2000E design. Delivery is scheduled for Q3 and Q4 2015. The orders mean that Seadill now currently have 27 rigs under construction, as the rig operator look to aggressively expand their current fleet with high-specification units.
