Stena Drilling AS

Stena Drilling

Stena Drilling, a wholly owned subsidiary of Stena AB, Gothenburg, Sweden is one of the world’s foremost independent drilling contractors.

In 1989 and 1996 Stena acquired Houlder Marine Drilling and Ben Line Steamers / Atlantic Drilling, respectively; and with them, history and pedigree dating back to the mid-1970s. The acquisitions were strategic in providing Stena Drilling, not only with worthy drilling units, but also with staff and personnel, who brought invaluable operational experience and success into the Company.

Today, Stena Drilling manages a global business, holding a portfolio of successful, past and present operations in the North Sea, US Gulf of Mexico, South East Asia, Mediterranean, Caribbean, South America, Australia, North Africa and West Africa. In expanding its fleet of well-maintained drilling units, the Company has had an active role in building and converting rigs and, in doing so, pioneering some of the most leading-edge technologies and innovations in the drilling world.

Stena Drilling’s core business values are focused on satisfying clients’ needs and requirements; and through efficient drilling operations, to manage assets and resources in order to maximise profits. Continuous attention to these values have led to long-term client relationships, which have been vital to the Stena Drilling’s successful past, and will prove rewarding in its challenging future.
