Singapore-based Keppel Offshore & Marine will deliver a KFELS B class jack up "PV Drilling VI" to Vietnam's PV Drilling Overseas (PVDO). The jack up is the 100th one built by the yard since 1970, reported a domestic shipping news provider.
"PV Drilling VI" can operate as deep as 400ft underwater, and drill as deep as 30,000ft. It can accommodate 150 persons.
What's more, it meets stricter emission reduction standards.
The Singaporean shipbuilder has a long history of cooperation with Vietnam, which can be traced back to 1988.
