Global Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Research Report: Information by Type , Operating Depth , and Region – Forecast till 2023
Offshore drilling rigs market is driven by many factors including, increase in offshore discoveries, increasing demand for oil and gas, and strict regulations against onshore drilling projects

Market Highlights:-

Offshore drilling rigs are robust and are capable of withstanding in the harshest temperature and environmental conditions. The current projects in offshore drilling are gaining attention from the oil industry. Libra Field in Brazil Santos Basin holds around 8-12 billion barrels of recoverable oil. Thus major giants such as Petrobras, Shell, Total, CNPC, and CNOOC are holding stakes in the oilfield. The estimated project cost is around USD 91 billion. 

The global offshore drilling rigs market, owing to increasing shallow and deepwater explorations. The semi-submersibles are a type of offshore rigs that are submerged by means of a water ballast system, such that during drilling operations, the lower hull portion is below the water surface. Most of the semi-submersibles are not mobile and are relocated with the help of tugs. Jackup rigs are offshore rigs typically equipped with legs that can be lowered to the seabed such that a foundation is established to support the drilling platform.


Industry News:-
