Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Let me welcome you on behalf of Caspian Drilling Company Ltd. (CDC).

The Company has a 25 years history and recommended itself as the leader of drilling industry in the Caspian Sea. The core personnel of CDC (both national and expatriate) have 25-35 years international experience in the oil and gas field with university degrees in drilling, geology, engineering, marine, electrical and mechanic. In total, there are more than 650 employees working in our company.
CDC is provided with semi-submersible drilling rigs – Dada Gorgud and Istiglal – to carry out drilling operations in the Caspian region. In 2017, CDC has increased its fleet with a newly built semi-submersible drilling rig, named after Heydar Aliyev.
As a result of CDC exploratory drilling operations Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli and Shah Daniz fields were discovered. Successful operations of CDC are indubitable evidence of the strategic course of collaboration between Azerbaijani and international companies in the area of oil and gas production initiated by the National Leader – Heydar Aliyev and continued by the President of Azerbaijan Republic – Mr. Ilham Aliyev.
The objective of CDC is not only to continue and expand its work in the Caspian Sea, but to make itself known worldwide by participating in International oil and gas projects.
