DABS members invited to visit oil rig

DABS Sponsor MAERSK Singapore invites members (only!) to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit an oil drilling rig – conveniently located in Singapore.

Maersk Drilling currently has one of their jack up rigs, Maersk Completer placed at KeppelFels and has invited DABS to come and see it.

When a drilling rig is in operation it is typically located in the most remote places and far off shore. This is thus a unique opportunity to come visit one of these massive platforms and hear about the operation of the rig and about life on board.

DABS Members will get a tour of the rig and an update on the drilling business.
