Lamprell provides a full suite of refurbishment services for jackup rigs including re-certification, conversions and major upgrades. Lamprell was originally founded as a rig refurbishment company in the late 1970s and is a trusted leader in the region, delivering safe, high quality products. The rig refurbishment scope varies with every project and can range from a simple repair to a major docking lasting several months for the upgrade or replacement of old, obsolete and sometimes damaged equipment and machinery. Lamprell has developed its rig refurbishment facilities in Port Khalid and in the Hamriyah Free Zone in the Emirate of Sharjah, to specifically suit its docking operations with deep water berths to cater for all rig designs. The Company has successfully completed numerous refurbishment projects for drilling contractors, including Millennium Offshore Services, Noble Drilling, Ensco, Rowan, Seadrill, Hercules, Aban, Atwood, Saudi Aramco, Saipem, Transocean, Nabors, National Drilling Company, Arabian Drilling Company and Japan Drilling Company. Lamprell consistently strives to operate to exceptional standards of safety and operational excellence, with a skilled, highly motivated workforce continuously delivering projects of the highest quality and complexity, on time and within budget.

In late 2016 Lamprell received a new contract award from Jacktel AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Master Marine AS, for the upgrade of the mobile operating unit “Haven” as an accommodation service vessel for the Statoil “Johan Sverdrup” field, offshore Norway. The works are scheduled to complete in Q2 2018.

Given clients’ keen interest in this stacking service, Lamprell set up a separate offshore stacking facility able to accommodate the rigs without reducing valuable quayside capacity elsewhere in our facilities.
