In a continuation of the long-standing partnership which links Gulf Drilling (GD) and Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), PDO has awarded GD a long-term contract utilizing the GD Rig 109. This long-term contract is an example of GD’s goals to create partnerships. GD was established with the goal of building strong, long-term relationships with partners that are based on the knowledge that GD’s fleet of drilling rigs can always deliver their objectives in both exploration and development fields.  This competency allows GD to operate at high levels of excellence.
