The Beginnings

Foresight Offshore Drilling Ltd, S. A, based at Abu Dhabi, UAE, is the flagship division of Foresight Global Pte Ltd, Singapore, a global conglomerate established in 1984 and led by its Founder & Executive Chairman, Dr Ravi K Mehrotra, CBE.

The flagship division has over three decades of experience in operating jack-up rigs on various drilling contracts, including turnkey well exploration projects. It brings global perspective to all its projects with long term commitment and local presence in India and Middle East region.

Conquering new frontiers

Since 2003, the Group has invested heavily in the development of the fleet of offshore jack-up rigs. In 2012, the Group committed $600 million to build three new LeTourneau Super 116E jack-up rigs. In 2016, the first two of these rigs – Vivekanand 1 and Vivekanand 2 were simultaneously delivered, dry towed and deployed with ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited) a global fortune 500 company. In July 2018, Foresight Offshore Drilling was awarded a contract for its new rig Vivekanand 3 by ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company), adding another global Fortune 500 company to its portfolio of clients.

Expertise, extended

In addition to the drilling services, Foresight Offshore Drilling also offers services like technical management, project management, training and crew building. It has an impeccable service record of providing 15 million man-hours without any Lost Time Injury.

The division today has a fleet of 5 jack up rigs and one land rig with an ambitious plan to expand the fleet to 12 offshore rigs by 2025.
