UAE: Drydocks World to Build Two Unique Jack-Up Rigs

Drydocks World has signed an Agreement with Malta Oil & Gas Ltd. for building two unique jack-up drilling rigs based on Gusto MSC CJ54-X135-A design.

The Agreement was signed by His Excellency Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World & Maritime World and Mr. Paul Robert Thomson of Malta Oil & Gas Ltd.

His Excellency Buamim said, “There is a great demand for new offshore drilling rigs in the rapidly evolving upstream oil & gas sector. Our strategy to contribute to the growth of this sector has paid rich dividends. Increasingly sophisticated and highly specialized drilling rigs are being used for deepwater exploration and development and this is the latest requirement of the sector and we are fully geared to meet the increasing demand.

The Units have dimensions of 76m x 76m and leg length 180.6m and are intended for operation in water depths up to 450 ft. Each rig consists of a triangular shaped hull with three open truss legs, rack and pinion type elevating systems and leg-to-hull fixation systems. The rigs will be capable of drilling HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) wells. They are equipped with a permanent accommodation for 150 persons, a heli-deck suitable for the use of a S61N or S92 helicopter and a retractable X-Y type cantilever carrying the drilling derrick.
