This contract brings the total order intake for Bentec to approximately US $200 million so far this year, and the number of rigs under construction to ten with the prospect of yet further contract awards.
Commenting, Alasdair Locke, Executive Chairman of Abbot said "During the last few years Bentec has been highly active in the Russian market where its rig designs have been recognized by a number of our clients as being ideal to cope with the prevailing harsh environmental conditions.
The Bad Bentheim based company has also justifiably gained a reputation for on-time, on-budget delivery.
The world-wide shortage of suitable rigs for the international oil and gas industry will ensure that Bentec's order intake will continue to grow, and we look forward to announcing further contracts in the near future."
The Abbot Group is the largest offshore drilling contractor in the North Sea, one of the largest international land drilling contractors outside the Americas, an operator of mobile offshore drilling units and a world leader in drilling rig design, construction and operation.
