Keppel FELS delivers the jackup rig 'UMW Naga 4' to UMW Oil & Gas Corporation in Singapore.

The rig was completed five days ahead of schedule, on budget and with a perfect safety record. UMW Naga 4 is the fourth consecutive rig that Keppel FELS has delivered ahead of schedule this year.

UMW Naga 4 is built to Keppel’s proprietary KFELS B Class design which is today the industry standard for modern jackup rigs. With another 16 KFELS B Class/Super B Class rigs on order, it reflects the strong market demand for the design.

Developed by Keppel’s jackup rig design arm, Offshore Technology Development, the KFELS B Class rig is able to operate in water depths of up to 400 ft with a drilling depth of 30,000 ft. It incorporates Keppel’s advanced and fully-automated high capacity rack and pinion elevating system and self- positioning fixation system. In 2009, the design received the Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award from the Institution of Engineers Singapore for its environmentally-friendly features.

At the handover ceremony at Keppel FELS, Mr Chow Yew Yuen, Chief Operating Officer of Keppel O&M said, “In a year where Keppel FELS targets to deliver a record 20 rigs, we remain committed to every delivery to go beyond our customer’s expectations and provide value-added services. We are continually innovating and improving our processes to increase productivity and safety.”

UMW is a leading industrial enterprise with diverse and global interests in the automotive, equipment, manufacturing and engineering, and oil and gas industries. The UMW Group has expanded beyond Malaysian shores; we now also have an international presence in Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Taiwan, China, India, Oman and Turkmenistan.
