The incessantly increasing demand for energy that have led to efforts to tap into non-conventional resources is positively impacting the global offshore drilling rigs market. Offshore drilling rigs have evolved manifold from wharf-based rigs that were used in late 1800s. Today, offshore drilling rigs can tap into petroleum reserves in waters that are more than 7,500 feet deep, and are as much as 200 miles away from the nearest shore. These rigs are equipped with advanced technology and are supported on poles that can be as long as 10,000 feet. With unparalleled development in oil exploration technologies, rigs incorporated with useful elements from different models have been developed for specific needs.

Offshore oil production which was complicated at one time has now become routine. Currently, there are around 900 large-scale oil and gas platforms that are being used to tap deep-water reserves. With drilling and extraction technology becoming increasingly sophisticated, oil and gas at even greater depths can be tapped.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in 2015, more than 27 million barrels of oil was produced offshore across more than 50 countries. Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Mexico, Norway, and the United States are the top countries for offshore crude oil production. Almost one-third of oil and gas explored comes from offshore resources. This is likely to increase to increase in the coming years, as there exist abundant oil and gas reserves in deep seas. However, the nearing exhaustion of shallow water oil and gas fields is leading companies to tap into reserves at greater depths.
