Lamprell delivers second Shelf Drilling rig

Shelf Drilling's Krathong rig

UAE-based offshore rig builder Lamprell has completed and delivered a new jack-up rig to Shelf Drilling, a jack-up rig drilling contractor. 

According to Lamprell’s statement on Thursday, the Shelf Drilling Krathong jack-up rig was delivered on schedule and within budget.

The rig builder added that the newbuild jack-up would sail within the next few days for deployment by the client at its drilling location, offshore Thailand.

The Shelf Drilling Krathong rig was designed and constructed according to specifications of its sister rig, the Shelf Drilling Chaopraya, which was delivered to Shelf Drilling in September 2016.

The two LeTourneau Super 116 Enhanced Class offshore drilling rigs feature high specification offshore drilling technology, as well as accommodation for up to 160 people.

Christopher McDonald, CEO of Lamprell, said: “I am delighted to report the successful delivery of the second rig to our major client, Shelf Drilling.

McDonald added that, with this delivery, Lamprell has completed and delivered a total of 27 new build jack-up drilling rigs.
