The Image Of The Leader Of The Drilling Industry In The Caspian Region
Riyad Babayev, Front Office Head, Caspian Drilling Company Ltd:
During our 15 years of existence, Caspian Drilling Company Ltd (CDC) has established a reputation as a leader in the drilling industry in the Caspian Region. Key staff at the company include specialists (both local and foreign) with 25-35 years of experience in the oil and gas sectors and educational backgrounds in drilling, geology, engineering, maritime services, electrics and mechanics.
When reputable companies participate in prestigious international exhibitions it has a positive impact on the companies’ images. This is the fourth time that we have participated in the Caspian Oil & Gas Exhibition and we are confident of its positive effect on our business. Today we are here once again to demonstrate our abilities. The CDC stand is equipped with two semi-submersible drilling rigs, Dede Gorgud and Istiglal, which are intended for drilling operations in the Caspian Region. The Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli and Shah Deniz fields were discovered as the result of exploratory drilling operations. In the near future CDC will be expanding its fleet of drilling rigs.
CDC’s goal is not only to maintain and expand the scope of its activity in the Caspian Sea but also to acquire global fame through participating in international oil and gas projects. Our stand offers some good opportunities and is larger every year. Our expansion into global markets is not far off and we have already signed a significant contract in this regard.
We are the only drilling company in the Caspian region to successfully, and on the first attempt, pass the Certification of Quality Management System for our compliance with the requirements of the International ISO 9001:2008 Standard. The success of CDC is unquestionable proof of the success of the strategy for co-operation between Azerbaijani and international companies in oil and gas extraction, which was launched by our National Leader Heydar Aliyev and continued by HE Ilham Aliyev, the President of Azerbaijan.
