Trust built through performance since 1989
Growing out of Foresight Group’s drilling division, Foresight Offshore Drilling brings with it nearly three decades of expertise in offering full service offshore drilling operation that puts our rigs and crews on the job for you. Because our crews are experienced and are own employees they take ownership of every task on board and every process involved in the drilling operation, which contributes to our success and our industry-leading 99.7 per cent uptime.
Throughout all of this time crew safety is of paramount importance. We have completed nine million man hours without a lost time incident, a 14 year endeavour. Through training efforts, regular drills and plenty of practise we do everything we can to ensure all our crew members are equipped with the right skills, supervision and guidance they need to work safely.
Based in the UAE, we bring a global perspective to our projects, tempering it with a commitment to deploy local talent wherever we can. We get the best from all of our people by giving them every opportunity to learn, grow and excel on the job. Through our local commitment we develop talent for our operations and for the future of the industry.
Since 2003 we have invested heavily in the development of our rig fleet, committing $600m to the purchase of three brand new purpose built LeTourneau Super 116e jack-up rigs. In 2016 the first two of these rigs – Vivekanand 1 and Vivekanand 2 – were delivered, getting straight to work on the same day when they began operations with India’s ONGC in India.
The future delivery of a third new build jack-up will take the fleet to a total of six, with this expansion the company looking to have 10 rigs in operation by 2020.
