IMI is a joint venture between state oil giant Saudi Aramco, Lamprell, National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia and Hyundai Heavy Industries.

ARO Drilling has announced plans to order at least 20 jackup rigs for construction at the new IMI yard and Lamprell plans to support the project with the construction of parts of two jackup rigs.
