Next generation drillships
The two eighth-generation drillships we recently put to sea—Deepwater Titan and Deepwater Atlas—were designed to deliver outstanding performance for our customers. Both operating in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, they are the first rigs in the world equipped with a 1,700-ton hoisting system, 20,000-psi well control system, and 10,000-psi mud system. The increased hook-load capacity of these rigs reduces well-construction time, while the HPHT (High Pressure/High Temperature) well-control system unlocks previously inaccessible reservoirs. Drilling and energy-efficiency features on the Titan and Atlas optimize fuel consumption and overall energy use per well. As the newest and most technically capable vessels in our fleet, these rigs will help us push the industry forward.
