Seadrill Picks Up Keys to Latest Jackup

Seadrill has taken delivery of the new jackup drilling rig West Juno from Keppel FELS in Singapore.

West Juno, a sister rig to West Callisto, is the sixth Keppel FELS "B Class" rig to be constructed for Seadrill. The rig features a 'fit for purpose' off-line pipe handling and stand building, enhanced mud systems as well as improved deck layouts and greater capacities compared to previous jack-up generations. The B Class design provides maximum uptime with reduced emissions and discharges.

Alf C Thorkildsen, Chief Executive Officer in Seadrill Management said, "We are pleased to complement our premium fleet with yet another outstanding jack-up drilling rig within budget and ahead of schedule. West Juno is the ninth jack-up rig added to the Seadrill jack-up fleet since 2008, and we are confident we will secure the rig a contract shortly."
