Maersk Drilling provides high-efficiency drilling services to oil companies around the world. Their modern fleet of deepwater semi-submersibles, 375 & 350 ft jack-up rigs and cantilevered drilling barges provide high level safety and drilling efficiency.
In May 2010 they named the latest addition to the fleet, a Deepwater Development Semi-submersible constructed at Keppel FELS in Singapore. The new rig is the third and final unit in a series of three highly advanced Ultra Deepwater Development Semi-submersibles. With its large capacities and highly efficient drilling equipment the new rig is capable of drilling 10,000 m (30,000 ft) into the subsoil measured from the seabed.
This makes the rig particularly well suited to drill deep and technically complicated wells as seen among others offshore West Africa, Brazil, the Gulf of Mexico and Southeast Asia. The rig is able to operate in water depths up to 3,000 m (10,000 ft) and can maintain its station either in dynamic positioning (DP) mode or with a pre-laid mooring system. The initial programme is for Dana Petroleum for drilling offshore Mauretania, West Africa. The contract has a duration of 90 days and commences upon final completion of the deepwater tests and mobilisation to Mauretania.

DRILLING RIGS (drillships, semi-submersibles, jack-ups, tenders and barges, land rigs). This is one of the largest offshore oil industry growth areas and there are many new drilling rigs under construction or on order as the oil price soars to 140 dollars a barrel and the hunt is on for more oil resources. There are many Offshore-Drilling-Jobs being opened up to meet this new fleet.
Drillships are usually Dynamically Positioned (DP) and the latest rigs are rated to drill in water depths of up to 10-12,000 feet. There are many new drill rigs on order to various drilling contractors and there are also many opportunities. In general the various drilling contractors are trying to outbid each other for scarce experienced personnel on salaries. Drilling contractors with drillships on order include Transocean, Seadrill, Stena Drilling, Pride International, Frontier Drilling, and others offer Offshore-Drilling-Jobs
Semi-submersible drill rigs are either DP or anchored and the latest DP rigs are rated to drill in water depths of up to 10-12,000 feet. There are many new semi-subs on order to various drilling contractors with Seadrill, Noble, Odfjell Drlling, Larsen, Attwood Oceanics, ENSCO, Sevan Drilling, Saipem and a host of others that are all constructing semi-subs and there many new Offshore-Drilling-Jobs.
