SINGAPORE – Jurong Shipyard has a $385.5 million contract from Helix Energy Solutions Group to build a semisubmersible well intervention rig.
The DP3-class rig will be constructed based on Bassoe Technology’s naval architectural design with Helix’s equipment layout.
It will be able to perform a wide variety of tasks, including conventional and extended top hold drilling, subsea construction, decommissioning well intervention, coiled tubing operations, and twin ROV deployment.
The rig will be suitable for deepwater operations worldwide, notably the Gulf of Mexico, offshore Brazil, and West Africa. Delivery is scheduled for January 2015.
