Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) has delivered the Skald jack-up rig to Borr Skald Inc, a subsidiary of Borr Drilling on time and on budget. 

Keppel O&M delivered the rig through its wholly-owned subsidiary Keppel FELS.

It is the second jack-up rig that Keppel has delivered to Borr Drilling following the delivery of the Saga earlier this year, with another eight on order, the rig builder said on Wednesday.

Built to Keppel’s KFELS Super B Class design, Skald is capable of operating in 400 feet water depth and drilling to 35,000 feet. The rig is equipped with cantilever skid-off capabilities, with a maximum combined cantilever load of 3,700 kips, and high capacity hook loads of two million pounds.

Chris Ong, CEO of Keppel O&M, said, “The delivery of a second high-specification KFELS Super B Class rig to Borr Drilling reaffirms our design and execution capabilities as well as our commitment to provide win-win solutions for our customers. We have leveraged the synergies of working on multiple rigs for Borr Drilling to improve efficiency and ensure an on time and on budget delivery.”

He added: “Our proven KFELS B Class suite of designs has distinguished itself in providing better value and drilling efficiency for drilling operators who prefer high-specification rigs of the latest designs.”

Developed by Keppel’s technology arm, Offshore Technology Development, the KFELS B Class designs have a market share of about a quarter of all jack-up rigs delivered since 2000, Keppel said.

Svend Anton Maier, CEO of Borr Drilling, added, “We are pleased to add another premium jack-up rig to our fleet. With 10 jack-up rigs ordered from Keppel FELS, we ensure that we get state-of-the-art rigs that can deliver the highest operational performance to our customers around the world.”
