ADNOC Drilling Company has signed an agreement to acquire two premium Gusto MSC CJ46-X100-D design offshore jack-up drilling units (rigs) for a combined cost of $200m.

The acquisition is part of the Abu Dhabi-based company’s fleet expansion and growth strategy, it said in a statement on Wednesday.

ADNOC Drilling has almost doubled its offshore jack-up rig fleet to 32 since early 2021, with further expansion expected in 2023 and beyond. The latest agreement adds to earlier deals for a total of nine rigs acquired this year and four rigs acquired in 2021.

“Our objective is to be operating a total fleet of at least 122 owned rigs by 2024, and at our fleet’s current, accelerated rate of growth we will easily surpass that milestone.”
