Mar 21 17
KEPPEL FELS has signed a heads of agreement with Borr Drilling of Bermuda, with the approval of Transocean, whereby the construction contracts for the five jackup rigs currently being built by Keppel FELS for Transocean will be novated to Borr Drilling. The transaction is subject to all three parties signing definitive agreements and satisfying formal closing conditions. The transaction is expected to be completed before the end of May 2017. In 2013, Transocean ordered five Keppel FELS Super B Class jackup rigs from Keppel FELS for USD 1.1 billion and made a 20% down payment. Under the new agreement, Borr Drilling will take over the contracts and undertake the remaining payment installments to Keppel FELS. The price for each rig is USD 216 million, compared to the original price of USD 219 million. Borr Drilling will also make a down payment of USD 275 million. The delivery dates of the five rigs were originally between 2016 and 2017, but they were deferred by Transocean to 2020. The first three rigs will now be delivered between 2017 and 2018, while the remaining two rigs will be delivered in 2020, Keppel said. This will enable Keppel to improve cash flow and minimise risks of the projects.
