A continued rise in exploration drilling cost is fuelling the development of a submerged and fully automated seabed drilling rig. In 2005, Seabed Rig AS, a Stavanger-based company, started the development of an innovative drilling rig to be located submerged at the seabed for cost-effective drilling in deep waters and arctic areas

Drilliing of subsea wells is highly expencive, as rig rates now are up to USD 500,000 per day. Also, it becomes more and more challenging to reach the un-harvested reservoirs, which are often located in deep water or in arctic areas. It is estimated that 40 percent of the oil yet to be found is located in deep water or arctic areas.
Seabed Rig AS vant 2. prisen i DnBNor Innovasjonspris 2006 blant 327 ideer i den nasjonale konkurranse.
