SINGAPORE – Keppel FELS has delivered the first of its KFELS Super A Class harsh environment jackups to Hercules Offshore-managed Discovery Offshore.

Dubbed Discovery Triumph, the jackup was delivered 46 days ahead of schedule, Keppel said.

The rig is one of two Super A Class jackups that Discovery Offshore is scheduled to receive this year. The Discovery Resilience is slated for delivery in 4Q 2013.

The high-specification jackup, designed for use in the UK sector of the North Sea, was customized to operate in 400-ft (122-m) water depths and to drill to a depth of 35,000 ft (10,668 m).

Hercules manages and holds a 32.1% stake in Luxembourg-based Discovery Offshore, which was established in early 2011.
