The new jack-up Perro Negro 11 has just been officially christened and it becomes part of the Saipem offshore drilling fleet. The ceremony has been held on 8 July 2022 in CIMC shipyard in Longkou (China) with the participation of CIMC Raffles, Ocean Challenger and Saipem.

In line with Saipem “asset light” strategy, the jack-up (chartered on a bareboat basis) is already committed to a 5-year contract (with option for an additional 2 years) in the Middle East.

In addition, during this event, a memorandum of understanding has been signed by CIMC Raffles and Saipem looking for future business opportunities in the segments of offshore drilling, offshore construction and new energies.
