HAMILTON, Bermuda – Seadrill Ltd. has taken delivery of the newbuild jackup West Juno from Keppel FELS in Singapore. It is the sixth Keppel FELS B Class rig built for Seadrill.

West Juno features what Seadrill calls a “fit-for-purpose” off-line pipe handling and stand building system, enhanced mud systems, and improved deck layout compared to earlier jackup generations.

West Juno is the ninth jackup rig added to the Seadrill jackup fleet since 2008, and we are confident we will secure the rig a contract shortly," said Alf C. Thorkildsen CEO of Seadrill Management AS.
