Transocean sets world water-depth drilling record in 10,385 feet of water off India

22 February 2013

Transocean Ltd. announced that the ultra-deepwater drillship Dhirubhai Deepwater KG1 has set a new world record for the deepest water depth by an offshore drilling rig of 10,385 feet (3,165 meters) of water while working for ONGC off the East coast of India.

This surpasses Transocean’s prior world record of 10,194 feet (3,107 meters) of water set by the KG1’s sister rig, Dhirubhai Deepwater KG2 in 2011 while working for Reliance in India.

Transocean owns or has partial ownership interests in, and operates a fleet of, 82 mobile offshore drilling units consisting of 48 High-Specification Floaters (Ultra-Deepwater, Deepwater and Harsh-Environment drilling rigs), 25 Midwater Floaters and nine High-Specification Jackups. In addition, it has six Ultra-Deepwater Drillships and three High-Specification Jackups under construction.

Transocean recently won court approval of its $1-billion settlement with the US over claims stemming from the Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010.
