Measuring Our


Transocean was recently recognized by Mitsubishi Petroleum Development Company (MPDC) for drilling this customer’s first operated well (see letter on page 4). The GSF Constellation I (CS1) was contracted by MPDC to drill the wildcat NGYSM-1 off the coast of Gabon in the third quarter of 2012.

The teamwork and support the Transocean team offered to MPDC, helped build the momentum for strong performance. The continued effort from both teams has led to the exceptional performance for the first 91 days of operations: zero downtime, zero Lost Time Incidents, and zero injuries.

Jerome Rudd, Sector Manager, Southern Africa Sector, recognized the partnership with MPDC, stating, “We are very proud to be a part of Mitsubishi’s significant history, which also leads to another ‘FIRST’ for Transocean. To be chosen as a solution provider for MPDC is an honor and we look forward to further cementing our well-established trusted partnership in the near future.”

The CS1 is now working for Total in Indonesia.
