Keppel FELS has completed construction of Saipem’s Scarabeo 9 ultra-deepwater semi, which has a contract to drill for Repsol offshore Cuba. A significant part of Keppel FELS’ work on the rig involved the completion and commissioning of marine and drilling systems onboard. The Frigstad D90 rig is equipped with a dynamic positioning 3 system and is capable of operating in water depths up to 3,600 meters (11,811 ft).

“In completing this complex rig, we leveraged our in-house engineering expertise, proven project management and execution capabilities to ensure quick turnaround time,” Tong Chong Heong, chief executive officer of Keppel Offshore & Marine, said.
