Lamprell Energy awards transport of a second jack-up rig to Blue Water Shipping. Following a successful delivery of the EDC Neptune from UAE to Russia in 2012, Lamprell Energy has again selected Blue Water Shipping as their transport partner to deliver a LeTourneau S116E jack-up rig from their Hamriyah yard to Russia.
“We selected Blue Water Shipping due to their competitive bid, but more importantly due to their many years of experience with large projects in the Caspian area including transport of rigs and other large modules”, says Kevin Isles, Executive Vice President, Lamprell Energy. The contract will cover the transport of a dismantled jack-up rig from Hamriyah via the Volga-Don river system to a yard in Russia. The transport covers 4 part shipments and will commence in the summer of 2013 with expected completion in the spring of 2014. The total project will exceed 100,000 cbm and will cover lifts of up to 1000 mts and modules up to 17.35 meters passing through the Volga-Don River. This is the second jack-up rig which Lamprell is building for Eurasia Drilling Company, the largest independent drilling company in Russia. With this new rig, EDC intends to further expand its offshore drilling activities in the Caspian Sea.
