Keppel Fels has delivered a jackup rig to Arabian Drilling Company (ADC), five days ahead of schedule, on budget and with a perfect safety record.

The ArabDrill 60, a KFels B Class jackup rig, was the 21st newly built rig that Keppel Fels delivered this year. With that, it has set a new record for the highest number of rig deliveries made by a company in one year.

ADC chairman Mohamed Yousof Rafie said: "The performance of our first new KFels B Class rig, ArabDrill 50, has fully met our expectations and we are now pleased to receive ArabDrill 60, which we are confident will be just as successful.

"Together, these two high specification rigs enable us to offer Saudi Aramco productive, safe and cost-efficient drilling operations."
