Keppel FELS Limited (Keppel FELS), a subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd (Keppel O&M), has delivered a KFELS B Class jackup rig to the National Drilling Company of Abu Dhabi (NDC) 18 days ahead of schedule. Al-Hail is NDC's first newbuild jackup in 20 years. It is also the first KFELS B Class jackup customised to meet NDC's requirements for a cost-effective rig. With leg lengths of 307 feet, Al-Hail is tailored specifically for operations in benign Middle East conditions of water depths down to 150 feet.

The rig is also equipped with Keppel's proprietary jacking and fixation system with fully automated control functions developed by Keppel FELS' research and technology arm, Offshore Technology Development (OTD).

"I am very proud of the co-operation we have with Keppel FELS. Al-Hail is a major project for us, and this first class rig clearly demonstrates the professionalism of Keppel FELS," said Mr Abdul Munim Saif Al Kindy, General Manager of NDC.

A leading drilling contractor in the Middle East, NDC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC). With more than 30 years of experience, it has built a reputation for excellence with 16 onshore, ten offshore and six water leg well rigs in operation.
