Lamprell plc reported the completion of construction on the jackup Jindal Pioneer (350’ ILC) and its delivery to Dev Drilling Pte Ltd of Singapore, a D. P. Jindal Group Company, on time and within budget.
The contract for the Jindal Pioneer jackup was signed in January 2013 and this is the second rig with the LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) Class design which Lamprell has delivered to this client.
This latest rig has been delivered following the completion of the first jackup Jindal Star (350’ ILC) which successfully sailed away from Lamprell’s Hamriyah facility in 4Q 2013 and is currently deployed in the Bombay high oilfield, run by India's Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), offshore India.
The Jindal Pioneer jackup was officially named, and completion was marked, at a ceremony held at Lamprell’s Hamriyah facility in UAE in January. This rig is the 12th Super 116E jackup drilling unit that the Group has delivered to various clients during the last seven years.
