The rigs have a static hook load capacity of 1.5 million lbs and 800,000 lbs set back capacity.

The mast will accommodate a 750T top drive supplied by three triplex mud pumps rated at 2200HP with a 7500psi high pressure mud system.

The rig will be powered by five 3516B CAT engines, and Lamprell will fabricate the rigs at its yard in Jebel Ali, UAE.

The project is planned to be complete during the first quarter of 2012.

Lamprell provides engineering services to the international oil & gas and renewables industry.
