Maersk Drilling’s ultra deepwater fleet has significant experience drilling in the deepwater conditions surrounding North, Central and South America. During recent years we have operated four floaters in the US Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean and South America.

While working here we have gained a world record for the deepest well ever drilled, measured by water depth, and encouraged local business development by recruiting local crews and making other investments. The region remains key for Maersk Drilling’s deepwater aspirations, and we are strongly committed to expanding our presence here.
