Semi-submersible drilling rig NH9 of China Oilfield Services Limited recently completed drilling operations for the first 1,000-meter deep water well. This achievement has made NH9 the second drilling rig included in the league of “1,000-meter-deep Drilling” after HYSY981.

This success made in the inaugural drilling operation of NH9 has taken deep-water drilling operations of the Group to a new level with further refinements in deep-water drilling technologies and equipment portfolio. This establishes a firm footing for large-scale exploration and development activities in the future.

NH9 is the deepest operation depth semi-submersible drilling rig put into operation by COSL in addition to HYSY981. It is a fourth-generation drilling rig with designed operation depth of up to 1,524 meters and the maximum drilling depth of 7,620 meters.

Mr. Li Yong, CEO and President of COSL, said: “Levering efforts by the COSL’s team in establishing a deep-water drilling equipment portfolio, the Group seen its deep-water drilling capability enhance further. This helped COSL tap the escalating demand for deep-water operation in South China Sea.

The Group will adhere to its positioning of establishing world-class capabilities to continue to increase investments in furthering its deep-water capabilities, research and development. This will help COSL move closer to his goal of becoming a top-notch oilfield services Group with cutting edge equipment, technologies and scientific management.
