Keppel lands 13th jack-up order of 2011

Keppel FELS has won a contract to build a second KFELS B Class jack-up rig for Jasper Investments worth US $180 million.  This is the second such order Jasper has placed with Keppel – the first order was placed in December 2010 – and marks the 17th order for a jackup rig Keppel has received since November and 13th since January 1.

Similar to its first jackup rig, Jasper’s latest unit will be able to operate in water depths of 400 feet, drill 30,000 feet deep and accommodate 150 men.

The rig is expected to be delivered in 2013
