The UAE’s National Drilling Company has signed contracts worth $543 million (Dh1.9 billion) to buy 14 new rigs, state news agency WAM reported recently.

One offshore and one onshore rig, worth $203 million, will be built in the UAE, WAM said, quoting the company’s chief executive Abdullah Saeed Al Suwaidi.

The onshore rig deal was signed with National Oilwell Varco, while the offshore one went to Lamprell.
