Borr Drilling Buys New Jack-Up
The offshore drilling contractor to the oil and gas industry worldwide, Borr Drilling has acquired a new jack-up newbuilding. The acquisition price is nearly half of what it was originally ordered for.
The offshore driller informed that the Hull No. B378 (formerly named Hakuryu-15) was bought for $122 million from BOT Lease Co. The purchase price was attractive as the original ordering price of the rig was approximately $240 million.
An important criteria for the transaction was a quick settlement before March 31, 2019 and the acquisition has been fully financed through an expedited establishment of a new secured financing facility arranged by two Nordic banks.
"The purchase of Hull B378 should be seen as an opportunistic deal, with the target to acquire a high specification rig at what we consider a very attractive price. The transaction does not indicate that Borr has a strong strategic desire to significantly increase the size of its existing fleet," said a press release.
With a largely homogenous fleet of 30 premium jack-up drilling rigs, the Company has established a foundation which provides strong cost and operating benefits compared to our competitors. Borr’s focus align="justify">
