Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) has, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Keppel FELS, delivered the latest jackup rig, named 'Hild', to Borr Drilling.

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 400ft water depth and drilling to 35,000ft. Equipped with a maximum combined cantilever load of 2,700 kips and high capacity hook loads of 2 million lb, the KFELS Super B Class has high horse power during drilling operations.

Following this delivery, Borr Drilling will have nine KFELS B Class and two KFELS A Class rigs in its 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 rig incorporates safety and environmentally friendly features which provide maximum uptime with reduced emissions and discharges. It has performed well in major offshore exploration and development programmes in various locations worldwide.

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