About Transocean

Transocean is a leading international provider of offshore contract drilling services for energy companies, owning and operating among the world’s most versatile fleets with a particular focus on deepwater and harsh-environment drilling. Their fleet of 78 mobile offshore drilling units includes the world’s largest fleet of high-specification rigs consisting of ultra-deepwater, deepwater and premium jackup rigs.

Business issues

Transocean uses BlueCielo Meridian to manage all as-built technical documentation to operate and maintain their offshore drilling rigs operating in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, as well as controlling the document workflow in ongoing repair and building projects on the vessels. Integration with their internal maintenance system makes up-to-date documents available on board the vessels utilizing BlueCielo Meridian Publisher for SharePoint.

How Transocean uses BlueCielo solutions

BlueCielo Meridian and BlueCielo Meridian Publisher integrated with Transocean’s RigDocs SharePoint solution, make up-to-date documents available onboard the drilling rigs at any time. This ensures:

  • Centralized storage of up-to-date as-built documentation for each oil rig
  • Controlled workflow in as-built, maintenance and repair projects
  • Automatic publishing and rendition of released documents to their internal maintenance system

What Transocean says

“We have worked with our BlueCielo partner for technical document management since the building process of our large Barents and Spitsbergen semisubmersibles in 2006. Today we are in the process of implementing BlueCielo Meridian into the rest of our vessels operating in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.”
