EDrill-2 is currently in Kim Heng Shipyard, Singapore and preparations are under way to mobilise the rig in early July.

EDrill-2 has worked continuously for PTTEPI, Myanmar on the Zawtika Field since its delivery in December 2015.

HitecVision touts itself as a group of serial entrepreneurs, having established or invested in more than 150 companies in the offshore energy industry for more than 30 years.

According to EnQuest's website, it was formed in 2010 through the combination of the UK North Sea assets of Petrofac and Lundin Petroleum. In 2014, the group acquired its interests in Malaysia.
