AMFELS Wins $76M

Chiles Contract

AMFELS Inc, of Brownsville, Texas, has signed a contract with Chiles Off- shore Inc (Chiles) of Houston, Texas to build a $76 million ultra-premium jack- up rig of the KFELS MOD V 'B' design.

The total project value is estimated to be $110 million, with AMFELS' share of the contract valued at around $76 mil- lion. Work on the rig is expected to start soon, with delivery scheduled for the third quarter of 2002.

Currently, another KFELS MOD V 'B'-class jack-up rig ordered in April this year is being built for Chiles at Keppel

FELS' Pioneer Yard facility in Singa- pore. This rig is scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2002. The

KFELS MOD V 'B' design is one of

KFELS' ultra-premium proprietary jack- up designs modified for non-harsh envi- ronment usage. It is designed to exceed the operating capabilities of convention- al non-harsh environment jack-up rigs and will be built to a leg length of 517 ft. (157 m), with an option to extend this to 545 ft. (166 m). The design also incor- porates modern engineering concepts that are designed to improve productivi- ty, enhance safety and provide added independence from supply lines and environmental conditions.

Lash Barges Certified By DNV

Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has formed an agreement with LMS Shipmanage- ment of New Orleans to certify 1,800 of its lash barges. The agreement, which went into effect this August, calls for certification based upon type approval and certification scheme.

While there is no international requirement for lash barges to be classi- fied, the industry requires third-party documentation from an internationally- known organization, such as DNV, to confirm the barges' maintenance and quality. DNV will certify the barges to

ISO 9002, type approval and approval of their planned maintenance system, in addition to periodical audits and inspec- tions. Certificates for the first 1,500 barges were delivered to LMS in August — the remainder will be approved as they are brought back into operation.
