- Lamprell has delivered the 'Ensco 141' jack-up drilling rig and to Ensco Intercontinental GmbH, a subsidiary of Ensco plc.

The contract for the rig was signed in April 2014 and this is the second rig with the LeTourneau Super 116E (Enhanced) Class design which Lamprell has delivered to this leading drilling operator.

The rig will be warm-stacked alongside its sister rig at Lamprell's stacking facility in Hamriyah, United Arab Emirates.

The group currently has a further four new build jack-up rigs under construction at its Hamriyah facility, which are progressing as planned and will be delivered over the coming 6 months.

Chief executive Christopher McDonald said: "I am pleased to be marking the completion and delivery of this rig to Ensco, one of our key clients. Our combined project team has collaborated effectively and has performed well to deliver this project while at the same time maintaining an exceptional safety record. Lamprell has demonstrated its capability to fabricate high quality, complex products for use by leading operators in the global energy industry."
