Transocean delays delivery of rigs at Keppel


Transocean has delayed delivery of jack-up rig newbuildings worth $1.1bn at Keppel FELS by up to four years.

Transocean said that by “mutual agreement” with Keppel Offshore & Marine, it delayed delivery of five Super B 400 Bigfoot Class jack-up rigs until 2020. Deliveries will now start in Q1 2020 and take place at two – three month intervals.

The rigs were ordered at Keppel FELs in November 2013, with the original delivery schedule calling for the newbuildings to be delivered from Q1 2016 through Q3 2017.
