Lamprell has one of the world’s leading facilities, which includes a deepwater quayside, for the construction of new build jackup drilling rigs. Additionally, we build land rigs and provide a full suite of refurbishment services for both offshore and onshore rigs, including recertification, conversions and major upgrades.
To date, we have built and delivered a total of 28 offshore jackups and 11 onshore land rigs to clients across the globe, and we have refurbished and converted hundreds of both, many for repeat clients.
Through our IMI partnership, two offshore drilling rigs were awarded in 2020 and both have been successfully loaded out and will be delivered in late 2022 and early 2023.
In collaboration with IMI and Saudi Aramco, we initiated an apprentice programme for young Saudi nationals looking to enter the workplace, supporting Saudisation and the Saudi Vision 2030. The apprentices are actively working alongside our teams on the rigs, some with our experienced engineers and others in our yard, learning trades skills such as fabrication and welding.
