We’re setting the standard in drilling
Our onshore teams provide the backbone for Seadrill operations worldwide. But it’s our offshore teams who stand on the front line of exploration. With the back-up of a global organisation dedicated to safety and invested in industry-leading technology, our aim is to set the standards others aspire to. It’s an ambitious goal - one that we achieve by combining quality assets with skilled and experienced people. By providing safe and efficient operations, we build and maintain our position as the preferred supplier of offshore drilling services.
We operate state-of-the-art mobile drilling units, applying the latest technological innovations and the expertise of our people. Our fleet is the newest in the industry, comprised of premium jack-up rigs and ultra-deep-water and harsh environment rigs. We’ve installed dual BOPS (Blow Out Preventers) to eliminate down-time, and installed MPD systems (Managed Pressure Drilling), the next step in well control unlocking reservoirs that can’t be drilled with conventional methods. Combined with the calibre of our workforce, the opportunities at Seadrill for career development are exceptional.
