Rig builder Lamprell reported Wednesday that it has completed the construction of jackup Jindal Star (350' ILC) for its customer Jindal Pipes (Singapore).
Lamprell said the rig was delivered on budget and 20 months after initial steel cutting. The occasion was marked by a ceremony at Lamprell's Hamriyah facility in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday. It will soon depart from the facility for its drilling location offshore India.
The firm added the project used 3.6 million man-hours to complete, without any lost time incidents.
The Jindal Star, weighing 10,500 tons, is a LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) rig with a self-elevating 477-foot leg design. This delivery means that Lamprell has now completed a total of 13 new-build jackups, six of the LeTourneau Super 116E design and seven of the Friede & Goldman Super M2 design. The firm has eight more LeTourneau rigs in the pipeline at various stages of construction.
