Keppel FELS shipyard in Singapore has delivered the Rowan Norway deepwater jack-up rig to Rowan Companies.

Exploration and development company Xcite Energy will use the OHT Hawk heavylift vessel to move the rig to Dundee, Scotland, where the rig will be tested.

The rig will then be equipped for deployment on the Bentley field in the UK North Sea.

Xcite Energy is to submit a development plan for the Bentley field to the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change.
