(US, GoM) - Ezra confirms that the rights to an upgraded offshore jackup unit will be transferred at cost to New Strong Group Ltd. (the 50:50 joint venture between KS Energy Services Ltd. and Ezra), which will in turn transfer those rights to KSES (USA) Inc. for a consideration of $44.5 million.
Working with a US-based oil & gas company, KSES (USA) Inc. will charter the offshore jackup unit to support the offshore drilling operations of an international oil company in the Gulf of Mexico.
