COSL Kicks Off Construction of Second Jack-up

China Oilfield Services Limited (COSL) said Tuesday that construction has begun on the company's second 400-foot jack-up rig, COSL942.

COSL's first 400-foot jack-up, COSL941, is operating in the Beibu Gulf of the South China Sea. The newbuild COSL942 is expected to augment the company's capacity in the near future.
