    STRATEGY

    “Satisfaction of our clients” and “Here to stay” - Our aim is to provide reliable services that fully meet the needs of our customers. We seek to establish long-term relationships with clients and local communities and for this reason focus our attention on countries and clients where there is the potential for establishing a real long-term presence.

    “We want zero work related incidents” and “Sustainable growth” - We strongly believe in the importance of taking a lead on health and safety and the protection of the environment, and seek to actively contribute to the social and economic growth development of the countries in which we work, through specially designed programmes.

    Research & Technology Development

    In the drilling business we are continually evaluating new designs and innovative drilling solutions in order to provide our clients with the most reliable and best in class technology in the execution of our drilling projects, particularly for projects that are in harsh and difficult environments such as our operations in the Barents and North Caspian Sea.

    Sustainability

    Employment, training and development of our local personnel are key elements of Saipem’s drilling business strategy. Our objective is to foster local people capabilities in order to train them to become highly-qualified drilling personnel. Another key to sustainability entails utilising local businesses to provide services and products required in our drilling operations. This approach helps to build long-term relationships, which are essential to consolidate our presence in the areas in which we operate.
