Grupo R jack-up pair in drilling ops for Pemex

Mexican drilling contractor Grupo R has informed that its first two jack-ups, Cantarell I and Cantarell II, have started operations for the Mexican state-owned oil company Pemex. 

According to Grupo R, the rigs started their work on Monday, August 1, 2016, in the Mexican Gulf of Mexico.

The Cantarell I and Cantarell II, of a KFELS B Class design, were chartered by Pemex for work in the Cantarell oil field.

The rigs were built by Keppel Offshore & Marine’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Keppel FELS. They were named at the end of May 2015 and delivered to its owner in March 2016. These are the first two of five rigs that Keppel FELS is building for Grupo R.

The KFELS B Class jack-up is designed to operate in water depths of up to 400 feet and drill to depths of 30,000 feet.

Developed by Keppel’s Offshore Technology Development (OTD), the KFELS B Class jack-up is equipped with a fully-automated high capacity rack and pinion jacking system, and self-positioning fixation system. It has accommodation with full amenities for 150 persons.
