Offshore drilling

Delivering safe and efficient offshore drilling operations. With over 40 years of platform drilling experience, we are one of the largest platform services operators in the world, safely delivering innovation to improve operational performance.

We are responsible, both directly and through affiliates, for managing drilling and maintenance operations on 29 offshore platforms including two jack-ups across the North Sea, Caspian Sea, Eastern Canada and Africa.

By working closely with our Kenera business unit we deliver integrated solutions from the concept stage, design and build to operations, maintenance and engineering support.

Over recent years, KCA Deutag has delivered significant plug and abandonment (P&A) scopes. These have required proactive rig operations and maintenance activities as well as rig modifications.

We have made a progressive effort to establish collaborative working relationships with service providers to increase efficiency and reduce operating time per well. Our track record for P&A operations is comprehensive, and our onshore and offshore workforce is therefore very familiar with P&A regulations, planning and execution.

Our delivery model focusses on collaborative partnerships with our customers, ensuring low non-productive-time to secure consistent high performance and well delivery.

We invest heavily in equipment reliability through new technology and data collection capability to enable us to plan and successfully execute maintenance programmes. This allows us to plan and undertake maintenance with minimal interruption to the ongoing operation and avoid any failures which could impact performance.
