SHARHAH, UAE – Lamprell has completed construction of the jackup Shuwehat within budget, and has delivered the rig to Abu Dhabi’s National Drilling Co. (NDC).
This is the fifth in a series of eight LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) Class rigs that the fabricator has been building for NDC. Earlier this year it delivered the third and fourth rigs, Qarnin and Marawwah.
Last month NDC commissioned two more jackups of the same design under a $365-million contract.
Following the recent naming ceremony at Lamprell’s Hamriyah complex, Shuwehat is due to depart to start drilling offshore Abu Dhabi.
