NDC takes up option for additional Lamprell jackup
National Drilling Co. (NDC) has exercised an option for a further high-spec newbuild jackup from Lamprell.
NDC had awarded the fabricator contracts for eight rigs and this ninth will be of the same LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) Class design.
It will be built at Lamprell’s complex in Hamriyah, UAE, with delivery scheduled for spring 2017.
NDC has further options for Lamprell to build up to two more jackups of the same design – these options have been extended to 3Q 2015.
