SapuraCrest is currently in the process of obtaining its shareholders approval for a proposed joint venture with Seadrill Limited, one of the world’s largest offshore drilling companies, listed in Oslo and New York, with a market value of approximately US$ 18 billion, operating a fleet of 48 offshore drilling rigs worldwide and 14 rigs under construction.
