Newbuilds

Permanent optimization of the fleet

Fleet evolution in action

The world's biggest and most diverse fleet just keeps getting better. While we achieve optimum productivity out of all our rigs, including seventh-generation models, our commitment to constant improvement dictates we continue to offer the latest in drilling rig technology. It was this philosophy that brought the first jackup, drillship, and dual-activity drillship, just to name a few of our innovations that became industry standards.

Next generation drillships and rigs

The two drillships we recently put to sea, both currently operating in the Gulf of Mexico, were the first rigs with hybrid-power systems. They actually generate power, which can be stored for later use. These are just a couple examples how we are pushing the industry forward. The newest members of our fleet family will provide even more tools to gather and share the critical data that is helping us deliver industry-leading performance to our customers.
