Ed Paden, president of Levingston Shipbuilding Company of Orange, Texas, has announced that a license agreement has been signed between Levingston and Viktor Lenac Shipyard, acting for itself and on behalf of Jadranbrod, the Association of Yugoslav Shipbuilding I n d u s t r i e s , which has about 25,000 employees.

The agreement allows the various shipyards of Jadranbrod to build the Levingston Class 111-C jackup drilling platform.

The rig will be constructed in the Viktor Lenac Shipyard in Rijeka and the Uljanik Shipyard in Pula, and will be delivered at the beginning of 1983.
