In 2018, you’ve helped us reach a number of almost 9 million page views, and 2.4 million new users. We’ll make sure to keep working hard and to keep delivering daily so you don’t miss a thing.
The offshore industry is still male-dominated, and this shows in our user statistics as well, where 23.1 percent of our website visitors are female, and 76.9 percent male.

Our most read article was breaking news in October announcing the proposed merger agreement between Ensco and Rowan which will, once completed, create a driller with the broadest geographic presence of any offshore driller in the market.
So, that’s enough of statistics for now, you probably have a better place to be at on December 31.

p.s. We’ll be taking it slow with the news in the next two days. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we’ll be releasing our most read articles by each quarter of 2018, and you’ll be able to revisit our most watched videos and interviews. Cheers!
