Maersk Drilling has taken delivery of its third ultra harsh environment jack-up from the Keppel FELS shipyard in Singapore ahead of schedule.
The rig will start its mobilisation to the Norwegian North Sea next month where it will begin a four year contract with Statoil.
It is the third in a series of four new build ultra-harsh environment jack-up rigs to enter Maersk Drilling’s rig fleet in 2014-16.
The four jack-up rigs represent a total investment of USD 2.6bn.
The first three jack-up rigs have now been delivered from the Keppel FELS shipyard, and the fourth will be delivered from the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in South Korea in 2016.
