Lamprell Wins Rig Build Contract with NDC

Rig constructor Lamprell announced Tuesday that it has won a contract from National Drilling Company of Abu Dhabi to supply a high-specification jack-up drilling rig.

Lamprell said this will be the ninth rig that it has supplied to NDC and that it will be of the same design that it has supplied the firm in the past. The LeTourneau-designed, Super 116E (Enhanced) Class mobile offshore drilling unit will be constructed at Lamprell's facility in Hamriyah, United Arab Emirates, with delivery planned for 2Q 2017.

NDC has further options for Lamprell to build up to an additional two jack-up rigs of the same design.

Lamprell CEO James Moffat commented in a company statement:

"I am delighted to be able to announce this new award from NDC, thereby extending our on-going relationship with our largest client by way of a ninth new build jack-up rig in the series. This is particularly pleasing given the backdrop of a challenging market environment. We are proud of the continuing confidence that NDC has shown in our track record for delivering high quality work competitively and to schedule and this consistent focus on client satisfaction is one of Lamprell's key strengths. We take this opportunity to thank NDC for this further business.

"With Lamprell now constructing a total of seven new rigs, we are establishing a reputation as a leading fabricator for major projects in the global energy market. Our focus will be on maintaining the highest standards of project execution and using our competitive position to convert our pipeline into contract wins."
