Dubai rig builder Lamprell announced the completion of the Shelf Drilling Krathong jackup drilling rig and its delivery to Shelf Drilling on schedule and within budget. The rig will sail within the next few days for deployment by Chevron at its drilling location, offshore Thailand. The Shelf Drilling Krathong rig has been designed and constructed to the same high quality specifications as its sister rig, the Shelf Drilling Chaopraya, which was delivered to Shelf Drilling in September 2016 and presently drilling for Chevron offshore Thailand. The LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) Class rig features high specification offshore drilling technology, as well as accommodation for up to 160 people.
Shelf Drilling headquartered in Dubai was established in November 2012 following the acquisition of 37 jackup drilling rigs and one swamp rig from Transocean. (Source: Shelf Drilling)
