CIMC Raffles hosts keel laying ceremony for jack-up rig

A keel laying ceremony was held  in China on Friday, August 15, in the CIMC Raffles’ Longkou yard for a new jack-up drilling rig.

In a statement on its website, CIMC Raffles said the rig was of the Friede & Goldman JU2000E design.

The company did not immediately respond to e-mail seeking comment about the identity of the customer for the rig.

The F&G JU-2000E is a self-elevating drilling rig designed for all-year, Central North Sea, harsh-environment operation in approximately 400 feet of water. This unit is designed to meet the 50-year-return environmental conditions in accordance with classification society assessment criteria & SNAME T & R Bulletin 5.5.

CIMC Raffles last week delivered a jack-up rig of the same design to its Malaysian Client Coastal contracts. The delivery was made at the rig builder’s Yantai yard.
