Stena Drilling, a leading provider of offshore drilling services, is delighted to announce a significant equipment upgrade for their state-of-the-art 7th Generation Drillship, “Stena Evolution”. With this enhancement, Stena Evolution will be capable of drilling and completing wells requiring 20,000 psi (20K) pressure control, enabling drilling in previously inaccessible reservoirs for our clients. Stena Evolution is already equipped to handle a wide range of drilling operations, including exploration, development, and production activities in offshore oil and gas fields worldwide. Upgrading the vessel for 20K operations will enable Stena Drilling to remain in the forefront of technological advancement in the drilling industry.

The upgrade includes the installation of cutting-edge drilling equipment and technology aboard Stena Evolution. Stena Drilling, together with equipment supplier NOV, and Shell, will start the installation of the 20K Subsea blow-out preventer (BOP) and other key equipment in 2026. When this new 20K equipment package is installed, the Stena Evolution will be able to perform completion operations in the Sparta field on behalf of Shell in the US Gulf of Mexico.

“We are very excited and proud to announce the 20K equipment upgrade for the ‘Stena Evolution’,” expressed Erik Rønsberg, CEO, at Stena Drilling. “This investment reinforces our dedication to innovation within the offshore drilling sector and our commitment to delivering top-tier drilling services to our clients. It also reflects our full dedication and focus to the highest standards of safety and environmental responsibility.”
