Seadrill Careers Hero Drillship Two

Our vision is to Set the Standard in Drilling

It’s an ambitious goal. One that we will achieve by combining quality assets with skilled and experienced people. By providing safe and efficient operations, we’ll build and maintain our position as a preferred supplier of offshore drilling services.

We operate state-of-the-art mobile drilling units, applying both the very latest technological innovations and the expertise of our people. Our fleet is one of the most modern in the industry, and we’re developing our fleet of premium jack-up rigs, as well as our position in deepwater and harsh environments, and are also pursuing further work in conventional waters.

To keep us at the forefront of drilling, we’re continually improving our technology and investing in upgrading our market-leading fleet. For example, we’ve introduced 2nd BOPS (Blow Out Preventers) to eliminate down-time and MPD systems (Managed Pressure Drilling), which is the next step in well control. As well as enabling us to run a successful operation that ensures we deliver customer satisfaction, our technology upgrades also create new and valuable learning experiences for our people.

As a global company with operations and businesses worldwide, we have opportunities in a wide range of countries. So you’ll have every opportunity to progress your career, and take your experience to new places with us.
