Maersk Drilling continues to lead the way in the technological advancements of ultra harsh environment drilling.
Maersk Drilling is a considerable player in the ultra deepwater market with four newbuilding drillships and three ultra deepwater development semi-submersibles.
During the past months, training in the systems on the Maersk Intrepid has intensified.
After a busy first couple of weeks, we had the official name giving of the rig. It was very special to me to attend this and be able to show the rig to what felt like the whole world.

We rounded the off-lying islands to the north of Mauritius early in the morning and made our way down the west coast of the island towards its capital Port Louis.
The Maersk Valiant crossed the line on the afternoon of the 3rd of May 2014 at longitude 89° 40’ East.
On Monday the 24th of February Maersk Drilling signed for Maersk Viking, the first drill ship in our fleet and took delivery of her.
Happy New Year! Hope you all enjoyed the festive season with your family and loved ones.
In early October 2013 the crew of Maersk Viking was divided into 2 teams prior to commencing the familiarization period in Korea.
Sea trial is to the marine personnel what the System Integration Test (SIT) is to the drillers: the first opportunity for a new orchestra to play a symphony together.
When building three rigs which are basically identical, a lot of the time can feel like déjà-vu, which also gives us the chance to do things better and to see things from new perspectives.
The further we get along this project, the more it starts looking like the finished product.
The commissioning stage is ramping up and activity on vessels 1 and 2 are progressing well even with the annual summer vacation that Samsung shipyard workers are enjoying at the moment.
Time doesn’t stand still, and after being away from the yard for a bit of holiday time for me.
Over the last week or so we have seen the second derrick being lifted and set sail from the building site on another glorious day here in Korea.
Another month has passed here in hot (and getting hotter) Singapore, and even though there haven’t been many visible signs of progress, work inside the rigs is progressing at full steam.
Another month has passed here in warm, but at the time very wet Singapore, and we have seen a lot of activity here at the yard, as well as a few milestones reached.
Anyone will tell you that standing on your own two feet is a very important milestone in ones development, and this is also true for our “little” project, however here in Singapore this means standing on three.
What a difference a few weeks and indeed months makes when you are having a Drillship Built.
Since last time, which was quite a while ago, a lot has happened here at the yard, and with the coming of the New Year a few big milestones have been reached in the XLE project.
Work since last time on the XLE project here in Singapore has only been (slightly) halted to celebrate Chinese New Year, the year of the snake. But we have seen a lot of progress along all lines.
Steel cutting on Vessel 4 has now been performed on what was a cold day in the minus figures.
Our first XLE is looking more and more like an actual rig than just a random arrangement of steel blocks.
Fabrication is progressing well in all areas here in Korea and in China.
Ok! Let’s explain a little bit more about the shipyards surroundings and Maersk Drilling Korean site office.
As an introduction to the drillship project group and how things are progressing we will start with a little insight into how the project group is structured
It’s been a few months since the last update from Maersk Viking, and we’ve been busy! As you may remember we last reported in at departure from Korea in February 2014 and during the Shellback Equator Ceremony in the Indian Ocean in March. A lot has happened since then.
