Keppel Wins $226m Offshore order

April 15, 2013

Keppel FELS Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine has secured a contract from Singapore-listed Falcon Energy Group Limited through its subsidiary, FTS Derricks, to construct a KFELS Super B Class jackup rig, bringing
Keppel Offshore & Marine’s 2013 to-date total to $1.8 billion (USD).

 

Mr. Wong Kok Seng, Managing Director (Offshore) of Keppel O&M and Managing Director of Keppel FELS said, "Falcon Energy entered the offshore oil drilling business when they ordered two jackup rigs from China in 2011 ... Falcon Energy has chosen the KFELS Super B Class design for their new high specification jackup rig, which will be built at our yard in Singapore.

 

"So far this year, Keppel FELS has already delivered six rigs ahead of schedule, safely and on budget. For the latest delivery of AOD II, a KFELS B Class jackup, to Asia Offshore Drilling, we received a bonus of about US$2 million for completing the rig 62 days early. With another 21 KFELS B Class/ Super B Class rigs on order including this latest contract, it is today the industry benchmark for premium jackups rigs."

 

Customized to Falcon Energy's requirements, the KFELS Super B Class jackup rig is equipped with a high capacity hook load of two million pounds for operations in high temperature and high pressure wells. Developed by Keppel O&M's technology arm, Offshore Technology Development, the KFELS B Class/Super B Class jackup design provides maximum uptime with reduced emissions and discharges.
