Singapore's Keppel AmFELS Delivers One of the World's Largest HEEM Land Rig

Singapore's Keppel Corp. Ltd. reported Wednesday that Keppel AmFELS, a unit of its wholly owned subsidiary Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd. (Keppel O&M) in the U.S., has delivered one of the world's largest harsh environment enhanced mobility land rigs 41 days ahead of schedule.

"The early and safe delivery of this rig is a result of the strong execution capabilities of the yard and close teamwork with our customer. Even though it is the first land rig of its type to be built by Keppel, we are able to leverage the experience and expertise of Keppel O&M to undertake such complex projects and deliver it to the satisfaction of our customer. It extends the track record of Keppel AmFELS as the leading rig building yard in the Gulf of Mexico," President of Keppel AmFELS Simon Lee said in the press release.

The workscope for Texas's Brownsville-based Keppel AmFELS included engineering, procurement and construction of the rig.

Keppel AmFELS' other ongoing projects includes the construction of a KFELS B Class jackup for Mexican drilling company, Perforadora Central.
