SHARJAH, UAE — Lamprell expects to take delivery shortly of the first of three jackup drilling rigs from an unnamed international rig operator.
All will undergo upgrades for deployment in the Gulf region.
The first rig will arrive at Lamprell's Hamriyah quayside later this month, with work starting immediately. The second and third rigs will follow later.
CEO Christopher McDonald said, “Over the last 12 months, we have seen increasing demand in this business segment evidenced through the awards of drilling contracts by regional operators.”
