Bob Keller, a Tarzan-class jack up rig, is now en route to the Middle East. Rowan expects total revenues of $201 million from the contract, which has an option to be extended another year.

The contract expands Rowan’s presence in the Middle East to nine jack ups, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Danny McNease said. ‘Our Tarzan-class rigs, in particular, have demonstrated drilling capabilities that are well-suited to this environment, and all three of these rigs will soon be working offshore Saudi Arabia.’
