We own the largest fleet of jack-up drilling rigs in the sectors of the Caspian Sea where we operate.

We operate in culturally diverse environments, strictly following best internationally practices. We have drilled in the Russian, Kazakh and Turkmen sectors of the Caspian Sea for LUKOIL, PETRONAS, Dragon OIl, Shell, ConocoPhillips and others. Our rigs have been specifically designed to meet strict "zero discharge" environmental protecton requirements.

The ASTRA jack-up rig was acquired in 2006 from LUKOIL and has been deployed in Russian, Kazakh and Turkmen sectors of the Caspian sea. ASTRA is currently cold stacked in the Russian sector.

The SATURN jack-up rig was acquired in 2011 from TRANSOCEAN and has been deployed in Turkmen sector of the Caspian Sea. SATURN is currently undergoing repair and maintenance in Azerbaijan. 

The NEPTUNE  jack-up rig built in Sharjah, assembled and commissioned in Astrakhan commenced drilling in 2014 in Turkmen sector of the Caspian sea. After returning to the Russian sector of the Caspian Sea in May 2016, NEPTUNE started Sarmatskaya-3 well drilling.

The MERCURY jack-up underwent final commissioning in November 2014 and mobilised to the Turkmen waters of the Caspian Sea in January 2015. MERCURY is under contract with Dragon Oil in Turkmen sector.
