Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd (Keppel O&M) has, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Keppel FELS Ltd (Keppel FELS), delivered the state-of-the-art jackup rig, Hild, to Borr Drilling Limited (Borr Drilling) safely, on time and within budget.

Built to Keppel's proprietary KFELS Super B Class design, Hild is the sixth jackup that Keppel has delivered to Borr Drilling, out of the 11 that have been ordered. It is capable of operating in 400 feet water depth and drilling to 35,000 feet. Equipped with a maximum combined cantilever load of 2,700 kips and high capacity hook loads of two million pounds, the KFELS Super B Class has tremendous horse power during drilling operations.

Following this delivery, Borr Drilling will have nine KFELS B Class and two KFELS A Class rigs in their fleet.

Developed by Keppel O&M's technology arm, Offshore Technology Development, the KFELS B Class designs have a market share of about a quarter of all jackup rigs delivered since 2000. The innovative and cost-effective rig incorporates industry-leading safety and environmentally friendly features which provide maximum uptime with reduced emissions and discharges. It has performed excellently in major offshore exploration and development programmes in various locations worldwide.

Keppel O&M had previously delivered the Saga, Skald, Thor, Hermod and Heimdal jackup rigs to Borr Drilling.
