Keppel Wins Contract from SeaDrill

Thursday, March 23, 2006
Keppel FELS Ltd has secured a $132 million contract from a wholly-owned special purpose company of SeaDrill Limited for a KFELS B class jackup rig. Delivery of this new order is expected in the second quarter of 2008. This order was secured via an option given to Odfjell Partners Ltd. (Odfjell) when it ordered its first rig in March 2004. Odfjell placed an order for its second rig in March 2005. In mid 2005, SeaDrill acquired Odfjell Invest Ltd. and was given the right to exercise Odfjell's option with Keppel FELS. Like the three jackups, this new rig will be of the KFELS B Class design. It is capable of operating in water depths of up to 400 feet, drilling depth of 30,000 feet and accommodating 112 men. Work on SeaDrill's first three rigs is progressing well at Keppel FELS yard. The first rig, SeaDrill 3, is scheduled for delivery in May this year. Upon delivery, she will be chartered to Total Fina Elf in Nigeria at a rate of $166,000 per day for two years.
