The new rig is of the 2000E jackup design, and the contract includes options for a further three jackup rigs of the same design.

"We are pleased to see Aker Solutions' competitive position in the jack-up market, which we expect to be active in the future," said Thor Arne Håverstad, head of drilling technologies in Aker Solutions.

The equipment will be delivered in 2013.

Aker Solutions will provide drilling equipment from its production units in Kristiansand and Asker in Norway as well as Houston, US and Erkelenz in Germany.
