Following the success of PV DRILLING I, as of midnight on 14th September, 2020, PV DRILLING II Jack-up rig reached the milestone of 11 consecutive years of safe operation without any Lost Time Incident (LTI-free), recognized by the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC). This is the second time a member of PV Drilling’s fleet achieving such safety milestone of international stature.

In order to maintain this commendable achievement, it must be mentioned the tireless efforts of a solid group from the Board of Directors of PVD Drilling Division to the rig crew, the strong support & commitment from the Board of Management of PV Drilling. This is particularly significant in the current period of time when the global oil and gas industry is facing unprecedented difficulties due to the "double impact" of the Covid-19 epidemic and the deep fall in oil prices ... but the difficulties could not prevent the gentlemen of PV DRILLING II from searching new height in safety performance.

Currently, PV DRILLING II is conducting the preservation and maintenance job after completing the drilling campaign for Petronas Carigali in Malaysia. It is expected that PVD DRILLING II will start the drilling campaign for Vietsovpetro in October 2020.
