NAM or Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij BV is a Dutch exploration and production company jointly owned by Shell (50%) and ExxonMobil (50%).

The ENSCO 122 jack-up rig, recently delivered by Singapore’s Keppel, will be the third ultrapremium, harsh environment jackup in the ENSCO 120 Series to work in the North Sea.

According to the VesselFinder, a vessel tracking web site, the rig is currently at the Keppel Verolme yard in The Netherlands, where it is undergoing acceptance testing.

Under the contract with NAM, the rig will be used for drilling in the Dutch and UK sector of the North Sea starting in the fourth quarter 2014 until the fourth quarter of 2016, at a dayrate in low $230.000s range.

The rig, constructed to an enhanced version of Keppel’s proprietary KFELS Super A Class design, is designed to drill to depths of 40,000 feet for the most demanding large multi-well platform programmes, ultra-deep gas programmes and ultra-long reach wells.
