Drillships have been the source of our focus and technical concentration from years of experience in following the process of manufacturing equipment to go on board these units to becoming part of OOG technical team in building the Norbe drillships at the DSME shipyard in Korea
Definition: A drillship is a maritime vessel that has been fitted with drilling equipment systems. It is most often used for exploratory work of new oil or gas wells in deep water. The drillship can also be used as a platform to carry out well maintenance completion work such as casing and tubing installation or subsea tree installations. Usually outfitted with a dynamic positioning system to maintain its position over the well.
The greatest advantages these modern drillships have is their ability to drill in water depths of more than 2500 m and the time saved sailing between oilfields worldwide.
By 2013 the worldwide fleet of drillships is expected to top 80 ships.
