Seadrill Orders Semi-Submersible Rig Ordered from Jurong

Thursday, May 10, 2007
Seadrill has entered into a contract to build another ultra-deepwater semi-submersible drilling rig at the Jurong Shipyard in Singapore. The turnkey contract has a net total project value of $531.5m with scheduled delivery of the unit in April 2010. The rig is based on the Friede & Goldman (F&G) design and is similar to the two units Seadrill already has under construction at the Jurong Shipyard. The new semi-submersible rig will be dynamically positioned and capable of operating in water depths up to 10,000 feet in challenging deepwater areas such as the Gulf of Mexico, offshore Brazil and West Africa. The unit will have 18,000 sq. ft. of usable deck space and 7,000 metric tons of variable deck-load.
