We strive to recruit the finest people available

Extra focus on offshore safety

We go to great lengths to ensure that our offshore staff members are trained to perform any and all operations safely and responsibly. As an offshore employee at Maersk Drilling, you will be required to attend training between hitches.

Employing fully trained, qualified and competent professionals is a prerequisite for the high safety standard we pursuit and demand. We lead the industry in using on-the-job assessments performed by specially trained assessors to ensure this.

Team-based training in new drilling simulator

As a drilling professional at Maersk Drilling, you will spend time in our sophisticated virtual rig environment. This state-of-the-art drilling simulator provides an astoundingly realistic training experience, and helps us stay at the forefront of industry developments.

Our drillers receive real-time feedback on their every move, but even more importantly, the simulator is equipped to model the work of an entire drilling team. This allows you to practise routine situations and prepare for emergency scenarios in an environment that in most respects resembles real life. These can include a wide range of advanced or extreme drilling operations, including stuck-pipe prevention, managed pressure drilling, blowout preventer landing and lower marine riser package disconnects.

The simulator even sports an advanced visualisation tool that allows you to experience what goes on beneath the sea and in the dark confines of the drill hole.
