Perisai in talks to delay jack-up delivery

Perisai Petroleum Teknologi, a Malaysia-based upstream oil & gas service provider, is in discussions with a shipyard to postpone the delivery of a new jack-up drilling rig. 

Perisai ordered the jack-up rig Perisai Pacific 102 from Sembcorp Marine’s PPL Shipyard in Singapore back in February 2013 at a price of $120 million. The rig was initially scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2015.

According to Hercules Offshore, that acts as operations and maintenance manager for the rig, Perisai Petroleum is now in talks with the shipyard to hold up the rig.

The rig’s delivery has been deferred once before in October 2015 when the rig owner and the shipyard agreed to delay it to a date no later than March 31, 2016.

Perisai Pacific 102’s sister rig, Perisai Pacific 101, is operating for Hess in Malaysia with a contract end date set for August 2017.

Perisai Pacific 102 is of a Pacific Class 400 design. The rig is designed and equipped to drill high pressure and high temperature wells as deep as 30,000 feet.

It is also capable of operating in water depths of up to 400 feet, capable of doing offline activity while drilling, can be jacked-up with full pre-loading tanks and has full service accommodation for 150 personnel.
