About us

Island Drilling was established in 2006 to build and own special purpose semi-submersible rigs for heavy well intervention operations, including coil tubing operations, through tubing rotary drilling (TTRD), and later converted and approved as drilling rig.

Island Drilling was founded by industry veterans and Island Offshore, the leading global player in well intervention.

In 2008 they changed the design and philosophy from well intervention rig and over to MODU(Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit), and continued the building project.

The company has currently one semi-submersible drilling rig constructed at China’s Cosco Zhoushan Shipyard, for delivery and classing in 2012. The rig adheres to NORSOK requirements.
