Smedvig is History, from Today It's Seadrill
After more than 30 years' service with drilling operations all over the world, the Smedvig name is disappearing. Smedvig and Seadrill have been merged into one company.
The new Seadrill has a diversified and modern fleet of nine jack-ups (including four under construction), seven semi-submersible drilling rigs (including five under construction), three ultra-deepwater drillships (including two under construction), two FPSOs and 13 tender rigs (including two under construction) for total of 34 units, of which 13 units under construction.
In addition, the company provides extensive platform drilling and well intervention services on three different continental shelves. The new company also provides significant engineering services based on its division of 200 skilled engineers. In total, Seadrill today operates in 12 countries on three continents. The merged company represents more than 4.800 skilled and highly competent employees.
