The sale is constructed as a sale of the shares in the rig owning companies PetroJack I Pte Ltd and PetroJack III Pte Ltd residing in Singapore. The two jack-ups are of Baker Pacific Class 375 design. They will be capable of operating in water depths up to 375 feet in Asia Pacific, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, Latin America, West Africa as well as in the harsh environment of the central and southern parts of the North Sea.
