GALVESTON, Texas -- A subsidiary of Ensco International has awarded Gulf Copper a contract to modify the jackup Ensco 83.

The fifth Ensco rig to enter Gulf Copper’s Galveston shipyard since Hurricane Ike, the Ensco 83 is undergoing upgrades and refurbishment before it mobilizes from the US Gulf of Mexico to work for PEMEX in Mexico.

“Ensco International has played a major role in the post-Ike restoration of the Galveston economy,” says Steve Hale, president of Gulf Copper. “The Ensco projects have enabled us to create and maintain jobs for local residents while generating significant revenue for the Port of Galveston.”
