Maersk Drilling recently reached another safety milestone. Its Maersk Resilient jack up rig went an entire year without lost time incidents.

“Another safety milestone has been reached! As a true testament to #MaerskDrilling’s commitment to safety, #MaerskResilient surpassed 1 year without any lost time incidents,” the company announced on Tuesday.

Lost time incidents are accidents that occur when a worker sustains a lost-time injury (LTI) that results in time off from work or loss of productive work (absenteeism or delays). Lost time injuries impact team morale, but also carry costs associated with downtime, compliance, and workers’ compensation.

Maersk said, “Safety is a foundation of our approach to delivering efficient wells. We have changed our main focus from trying only to prevent incidents to creating a system that allows us to recover without serious consequences when incidents do occur. We firstly focus on reaching zero serious incidents and, secondly, accept that people will make mistakes. We are building a system where people can fail safely.”

The harsh environment jack-up was recently awarded a one-well contract in the United Kingdom sector of the North Sea this year.

The Maersk Resilient is the first in a series of four identical high-efficiency jack-ups.

The rig is fully equipped for high pressure/high temperature (HP/HT) drilling and is designed for year-round operation in the North Sea, in water depths up to 107 m (350 ft.) with an available leg length below hull of 148 m (485 ft.). The rig can accommodate 120 people.

The sixth-generation semi-submersible drilling rig Maersk Discoverer conducted the recent campaign at the Kawa-1 well on the Corentyne block offshore Guyana, where it encountered hydrocarbons. If commercial, this would be the first major payday outside of the prolific Stabroek Block. The rig is expected to continue drilling operations on the block at the Wei-1 prospect.
