Rowan first established operations in the North Sea with a semi-submersible rig in 1973.
Our North Sea fleet now boasts three Super Gorilla rigs and three N-class jack-ups built
specifically to work in this harsh environment and in up to 400 feet of water (121 meters).
Crews in this region operate some of the newest, most
advanced jack-up rigs in Norway and work a schedule of
two weeks offshore followed by four weeks off the rig. Due
to the water depth of our rigs in this area, our crews commute from the same airport where the heliport is located – within walking distance. Our Norway operations are supported by operations management and administrative
functions in our Stavanger office.
Crews working on our highly advanced rigs in the UK
sector of the North Sea are supported by offices and a
warehouse in Aberdeen, Scotland. Crew members work 21
days offshore followed by 21 days off the rig, and travel to
the rigs by helicopter.
