About Odfjell Drilling

Odfjell Drilling is an international drilling- and well service provider with more than 45 years of experience. The company has approximately 2700 valued employees, serving clients globally.

Odfjell Drilling owns and operates mobile offshore drilling units internationally, and is a provider of platform drilling services in Norway and the UK. The company also offers tubular running-, rental- and well intervention services. Through Odfjell Energy, the company will transition its engineering and project management competence into providing services to maritime industries on- and offshore, specialising in energy- and emission reduction solutions. 

In 2020 Odfjell Drilling saw an opportunity to join forces with Oceanwind AS, and combine five decades of harsh environment offshore experience with 20 years of offshore wind competence. The common objective is to further commercialise energy from the offshore floating wind market.

This was one step in Odfjell Drilling’s goal to become a net zero carbon emission company by 2050. In order to reach zero we are continuously evaluating new solutions within battery- and hybrid technology, alternative fuels, land power and carbon capture.

By merging fifty years of history with the technology of tomorrow, our people will develop solutions for the future. Therefore, we are constantly looking for talented people to join us and help solve the challenges we will face to reach zero carbon emissions. Odfjell Drilling will rely on innovation and new thinking as enablers of safe and efficient operations, while reducing our emissions and environmental impact.
