    ENSCO orders premium jack-up from Keppel FELS

    Yard News // February 20, 2004
    Ensco International has reported that a subsidiary has entered into an agreement with Keppel FELS Limited in Singapore to exchange three ENSCO rigs and US$55 million of cash for the construction of a new high performance premium jack-up rig.

    The three rigs to be exchanged are ENSCO 55, a 300ft Friede & Goldman 780 Mod II jack-up built in 1981, and two Gulf of Mexico platform rigs, ENSCO 23 and ENSCO 24, built in 1980.

    The new premium jack-up, to be named ENSCO 107, will be an enhanced KFELS MOD V (B) design modified to ENSCO specifications and a sister to ENSCO 106, a joint venture project with Keppel FELS, which is currently under construction in Singapore.
