Keppel delivers fourth enhanced KFELS Super A Class unit to EnscoRowan
Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd's (Keppel O&M) wholly-owned subsidiary Keppel FELS Ltd (Keppel FELS) has delivered ENSCO 123 to Ensco Rowan plc (EnscoRowan) on schedule and with zero lost-time incidents. Built to an enhanced version of Keppel's state-of-the-art KFELS Super A Class design, the harsh environment jackup rig has been chartered for operations in the UK North Sea ahead of its delivery.

Mr Tan Leong Peng, Executive Director (Offshore) of Keppel O&M, said, "Keppel has had a long and successful partnership with EnscoRowan. Combining our expertise and experience, we have brought a number of next generation offshore rigs to market that have set industry benchmarks for safety, efficiency and versatility. ENSCO 123 is Keppel's fourth enhanced KFELS Super A Class unit for EnscoRowan, and we are delighted to see the rig join its three predecessors that are performing offshore operations for customers in the challenging environments of the North Sea."

Featuring Keppel's proprietary and superior jacking and fixation system, the KFELS Super A Class jackup design can operate in a variety of environments in water depths up to 400 feet. The rig is designed to drill to total depths of 40,000 feet for the most demanding large multi-well platform programmes, ultra-deep gas programmes and ultra-long reach wells.

It features a 2.5 million pound quad derrick, fully-automated hands-free offline pipe handling systems, ultra-high capacity jacking and fixation systems, 145 person quarters, and strict noise and ergonomic standards

Mr Gilles Luca, Senior Vice President of Operations Support for EnscoRowan, said, "The delivery of ENSCO 123 is the culmination of the efforts of EnscoRowan and Keppel FELS personnel over many years to design and construct our four ENSCO 120 Series rigs. These harsh environment jackups are amongst the most capable shallow-water assets globally, and offer technical capabilities that help us deliver increased efficiencies to customers as they execute their offshore projects. The completion of ENSCO 123 without a lost time incident speaks to the unwavering safety focus of the team during this project, and is indicative of the consistent professionalism that Keppel FELS has displayed towards EnscoRowan over the course of our long-standing relationship."
