Keppel delivers Rowan rig

Singapore’s Keppel Fels delivered its third and final KFELS N-Class jack-up rig to Houston-based Rowan.

The jack-up rig Rowan Norway was successfully delivered to the rig owner and will be transported to Dundee using the OHT Hawk heavylift vessel, according to London-listed junior Xcite Energy.

The rig will undergo final testing in Dundee before being crewed and equipped for deployment on Xcite’s Bentley heavy oil field in the UK North Sea.

Xcite signed a deal with Rowan earlier this year to charter the rig for an initial 240-day period on a day rate in the low $250,000s.

The KFELS N-Class design is the largest type of jack-up constructed in Singapore and can operate in water depths of up to 500 feet and is capable of drilling to a depth of 35,000 feet.

The Rowan Norway is the third KFELS N-Class jack-up to be delivered to Rowan from Keppel following the successful delivery of the Rowan Viking and the Rowan Stavanger.
