The mobile platform is to a Super 116E (Enhanced) Class design, for operation in water depths of up to 350 feet and will have a rated drilling depth of 30,000 feet.

This is our second order from a highly valued customer and it further underlines both Lamprell's strong position within the market for jackup rigs as well as the continuing support of our existing customers. We have developed an excellent working relationship with Jindal and we look forward to delivering successfully on this crucial project."
