Maersk RigWorld Drilling Vacancy Announcement.

Maersk RigWorld Drilling has announced that it is seeking to recruit high performing and experienced offshore professionals to work on a drill ship.

As the name implies, a drillship is a marine vessel that’s been modified to drill oil and gas wells. While drillships look similar to a tanker or cargo vessel, there are a couple of major differences.

Drillships are equipped with a drilling derrick and moon pool. In addition, drillships have extensive mooring or positioning equipment, as well as a helipad to receive supplies and transport staff.

Drill ships are special purpose ships which are used for drilling on the ocean beds at deep seas.Such offshore drilling ships, relative to their operational peers have come to be regarded as a safe and sure option for extracting oil and gas at the sea.

This is mainly because of the easy transportability that these vessels offer vis-à-vis the semi-subs and other kinds of ships that are used to carry out drilling operations in the high seas.
