STREICHER is a global leading company based in Deggendorf, Germany, which specialises in the planning and construction of onshore and offshore drilling rigs according to specific applications and client requirements.

Additionally, STREICHER provides a wide range of drilling equipment and services, including hydraulic top drives, BOP closing units and BOP recertification.

Offshore rig technology for the oil and gas industry

STREICHER offshore drilling rigs are customised for special applications and specific client needs. The technology solution can be used when a jack-up or refurbishment of the existing derrick is technically not feasible or economically viable. STREICHER was the first company that introduced the modular drilling rig (MDR) technology to the offshore sector.

The MDR technology strips down an offshore drilling rig into small lightweight modules. The modules can be easily transported by supply vessels and rigged up quickly at almost all fixed platforms, which have previously used a derrick. The VDD 400 series provides field-proven technology, which has been operating around the world, including the North Sea and Pacific Ocean. Besides the MDR technology, STREICHER provides automated light workover units (unit weight below 100mt) technology that can be used on jack-up rigs plugging and abandoning (P&A) operations, as well as on wellhead platforms for ESP replacements.

STREICHER VDD rigs meet global offshore standards.
Drilling simulations provide operators with comprehensive training of VDD rig systems.
QR codes are assigned to BOP recertifications for efficient access to documentation.

In addition to European and American standards, our offshore rigs comply with demanding NORSOK standards.
