Lamprell to supply ninth offshore drilling rig to National Drilling Company

jackuprig-VESIX-flickrAbu Dhabi’s National Drilling Company (NDC) has awarded Lamprell a contract for the construction and delivery of a high specification jackup drilling rig

Lamprell will supply the LeTourneau-designed, Super 18E (Enhanced) Class mobile offshore drilling unit, which will be constructed at the Lamprell facility at Hamriyah, UAE. The unit is likely to be delivered in Q2 2017, and is the ninth one to be delivered by the company to NDC.

Lamprell CEO James Moffat said, “I am delighted to be able to announce this new award from NDC, thereby extending our ongoing relationship with our largest client. This is particularly pleasing given the backdrop of a challenging market environment. We are proud of the continuing confidence that NDC has shown in our track record for delivering high quality work competitively and this consistent focus on client satisfaction is one of Lamprell’s key strengths.”

Further on, NDC has the option to build up to an additional two jackup rigs of the same design, which have been extended to Q3 2015.
