New Rig, New Team, New Roles

 Blog  01 June 2021

Every new rig startup requires a new team to come together.

This requires all of us to work together and appreciate, and respect, the role we all play. Particularly when it comes to our ultimate operational responsibility, well control.

Our thanks to the Qatargas Drill Team and the Gulf Drilling International Team.
