Singapore’s tender assist drilling rig specialist Energy Drilling has chartered a semi-submersible rig from Chinese government-owned rig manager SinoOcean Offshore Engineering Assets Management.

SinoOcean said on Wechat that the rig Guo Hai Tai He was delivered in late June. The delivery was witnessed by representatives from Energy Drilling, SinoOcean and rig builder Cosco Shipping Heavy Industry’s Guangzhou yard.

The statement did not disclose the rig's destination, but sources suggested the rig will be working for a regional oil company in Southeast Asia.
