Noble International Limited has awarded Lamprell a US$ 20.4 million award for the fabrication and installation of three 309 feet legs for the David Tinsley jackup drilling unit, in addition to general refurbishment and upgrade works already underway to repair the hull, leg wells and jacking houses. The work has commenced at the Hamriyah facility and is scheduled to be completed by the end of July 2015.
Transocean Investments S.a.r.l. (“Transocean”) has awarded Lamprell the contract for the upgrade and refurbishment of the Key Manhattan jackup drilling unit. This project will be undertaken in Croatia by Lamprell at the Nauta Lamjana shipyard. The initial contract value is US$ 13.4 million and the work scope includes extensive steel renewals and associated painting works, structural repairs to the cantilever and derrick, and the replacement of hull piping systems.

Commenting on the contract awards Nigel McCue, Chief Executive Officer, Lamprell said:
“We are delighted to be announcing these contract awards which illustrate the continuing demand for our services. The contract with Saipem is our first FPSO award since July 2008 and reinforces the confidence we have in the long-term viability of the offshore construction market both for fixed and floating structures.
We are also pleased to announce our rig refurbishment contract wins with two long established clients. They endorse our strong reputation for quality, safety and service and for delivering projects on schedule and on budget. We are particularly encouraged to be involved in the offsite project with Transocean, which reflects a developing area of business for Lamprell.
We are confident that Lamprell will continue to meet and exceed the expectations of its clients.”
