ENSCO is a leading offshore drilling firm that serves the oil and gas industry. Headquartered in London, England, ENSCO operates across six continents utilizing its deepwater and ultra-deepwater fleet.
Working alongside the world’s leading oil companies, ENSCO manages operations through three business units: North and South America, Europe and the Mediterranean, and the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Pacific Rim.
ENSCO’s operational fleet includes drillships, dynamically-positioned semisubmersibles, moored semisubmersibles and premium jackups. ENSCO’s drillships and semisubmersibles, or floaters, have capabilities to reach ultra-deepwater in depths of up to 10,000 feet. ENSCO also manages 39 premium jackups, making it the operator of the world’s largest premium jackup fleet.
ENSCO holds safety as an important priority on its fleet. Managing employee safety through its Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Management System, the system helps ENSCO manage risks while allowing the company to continually improve.
Although ENSCO has safety precautions in place for its workers, accidents unfortunately still occur. In 2014, two ENCO oil rig workers were involved in a fatal accident on the ENSCO 104. The workers suffered fatal head injuries when an accident happened during a routine lifeboat inspection after a safety harness snapped.
