In keeping with the naming tradition for all of SeaDrill's other drilling units, this rig has been christened with the name of a celestial body, West Ariel. This KFELS B Class rig will have the capability of operating in water depths of up to 400 feet, has a drilling depth of 30,000 feet and can accommodate 112 men.
Commenting on the early delivery of the rig, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer of Keppel O&M, Mr. Tong Chong Heong, said, "I am delighted with the early completion of the West Ariel which demonstrates our commitment to keep our promises of on-time, within-budget deliveries to our customers."
