Transocean Honor Rig Naming

Amazing and glamorous is how Gihan Awwad described the Transocean Honor Naming Ceremony at the PPL Shipyard in Singapore on Friday morning. Gihan, HR Coordinator, Egypt, was among almost 200 guests at the ceremony along with Transocean Ltd. President and CEO Steven Newman and Senior Vice President of Marketing Terry Bonno, who served as the rig's lady sponsor. The day was a time of reflection to remember and honor the 11 crewmembers of the Deepwater Horizon lost in the tragic Macondo incident of 2010. The 11 stars on the coveralls of the Transocean Honor crewmembers, who gave tours of the rig after the ceremony, help ensure the 11 men will never be forgotten. In the evening, a dinner at the Pan Pacific Hotel was another chance to remember the 11 lost crewmembers and to look forward, as the Transocean Honor is the first of four High-Specification Jackups being built in Transocean's drive to renew our fleet. The rig was celebrated with good food and fellowship as co-workers and friends reunited from around the world.
