Lamprell Completes Construction of ‘Jindal Star’ Jackup Rig

Lamprell, a leading provider of diversified engineering and contracting services to the onshore and offshore oil & gas and renewables industry, announced yesterday the completion of construction of the jackup rig “Jindal Star” and its delivery to Jindal Pipes (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (Jindal) a D. P. Jindal Group Company.

Completion and delivery of the rig, on budget and 20 months after initial steel cutting, was marked with a ceremony at Lamprell’s Hamriyah facility in the UAE on 6 November, which will be followed by the rig’s departure from the facility to its drilling location in offshore India.

The project was completed with more than 3.6 million man-hours without any lost time incidents. The Jindal Star, weighing 10,500 tonnes at delivery, is a LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) with a self – elevating, 477 ft leg design. The spud cans were redesigned and fitted with extensions to meet Jindal’s requirement with regard to the maximum ground bearing pressure, which is specific to Indian waters.

With this delivery, the Group has now completed a total of 13 new build jackup drilling rigs, six of the ‘LeTourneau Super 116 E’ design and seven of the ‘Friede & Goldman Super M2’ design.

The Group has eight more LeTourneau rigs at various stages of construction.
