Company Response

17 Mar 2023

Transocean did not respond

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Transocean to respond to the report alleging that Transocean is one of the oilfield services companies that “…have continued to work in Myanmar after the military’s attempted coup, helping the flow of gas – and revenues vital to the junta – to continue.” The report alleges that the “…company’s fleet status report for February 2021 shows that one of its rigs, the Dhirubhai Deepwater KG2, was operating off Myanmar for Woodside when the military launched its coup attempt...” and that “…this rig continued to be under contract in Myanmar until August 2021.” The report further alleges that “An international contingent of Transocean staff were active in Myanmar up until at least March 2022.” The report asserts that “…oilfield services companies have made themselves complicit with the junta as it commits war crimes and crimes against humanity against the people of Myanmar.”
