Lamprell has completed the construction of the jackup rig Makasib and its delivery to Abu Dhabi's National Drilling Co. (NDC).
Completion of the jackup rig, within budget, was marked at a ceremony at Lamprell's Hamriyah facility in the UAE on July 12 and the rig departed the facility on August 23, going directly to her initial drilling location.
The Makasib, the first of a total of six rigs being built for NDC by Lamprell, has a contract value of $168 million at completion.
The rig, which weighs approximately 9,400 tons, is a LeTourneau Super 116E (enhanced), self-elevating, 310-ft (94-m) legs design, with a fully automatic drillfloor with vertical piperacker. The rig will now travel to the Zakum field, Arabian Gulf.
