Stena Drilling has had an active role in the building and conversion of rigs whilst also pioneering some of the most leading-edge technologies and innovations in the drilling world, culminating with the Stena IceMAX, the worlds’ first dynamically positioned, dual mast ice-class drillship, meticulously designed specifically for safe and efficient operations in artic conditions.
“Having begun with no MPD capable rigs and little experience of MPD operations in 2016 the company has grown to have a fleet of three, DNV approved deepwater MPD Drillships with a fourth due for full MPD upgrade in Q4 2021. In this time the our MPD fleet has drilled fourteen deepwater MPD wells, equivalent to over 1100 MPD Well days, safely and efficiently for our clients in multiple geographical regions and regulatory environments. Stena Drilling’s success and growth in the MPD sector can be attributed to consistently delivering safe and efficient MPD operations to our clients under a fully integrated MPD service model which means the client can receive a full MPD service from the drilling contractor under the rig contract. Our MPD systems are truly integrated, subject to full classification authority rules and are maintained and operated by Stena Drilling’s technical and operational teams who undergo a thorough in-house MPD training program. Stena Drilling have fully embraced managed pressure drilling and are committed to becoming the number 1, integrated MPD drilling contractor in the offshore drilling market.”
