Aban Offshore Limited (AOL) was established in 1986 when Indian entrepreneurs were encouraged to provide offshore drilling services to the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC) to meet the growing needs of a vibrant economy. AOL launched its first contract drilling service to the ONGC in 1987 with two modern jack-up drilling rigs acquired from the USA.
By the 1990s, many private sector companies in India chose to exit the drilling business. However, AOL preferred to increase its focus on the sector with newer rigs, acquisitions and mergers.
AOL currently possesses eighteen offshore drilling and production units spiraling us to a prestigious position among the top ten offshore drilling asset owners in the world.
