With over 30 years of continuous operating experience, QGOG Constellation is a leading Brazilian-controlled provider of oil and gas contract drilling and FPSO services in Brazil. We are also one of the ten largest drilling companies globally, based on ultra-deepwater and deepwater drilling rigs in operation.
Through our subsidiary QGOG, we operate in the fast-growing Brazilian oil and gas industry, which requires substantial resources to explore the recent discoveries of vast potential oil and gas reserves off the coast of Brazil.
QGOG Constellation owns and holds ownership interests in a state-of-the-art offshore fleet, constructed by the world’s leading shipyards. Our modern fleet includes nine ultra-deepwater rigs in operation or under construction, one deepwater rig, two midwater rigs, nine onshore rigs and partnerships in six FPSOs.
We combine a high standard of operating performance and drilling efficiency with adherence to the highest quality, health, safety and environmental, or QHSE, standards. All of our drilling operations are certified by ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 standards. In addition, we have adopted the ISM Code (Maritime Safety and Pollution Prevention) and the ISPS Code (Maritime Security).
We strive to act in a socially responsible manner, upholding the principles of transparency and integrity, in order to enhance the quality of our relationship with our employees, customers and all of our stakeholders.
