Dear co-worker:

This note comes to you from our new office in Geneva, which is right in the middle of Transocean’s global operations. I hope my recent move here will allow me to see more of you worldwide, more easily. Over the past couple of months for instance, I’ve had the opportunity to visit co-workers in India, where I attempted to make a speech in Hindi during the 2009 Safety Vision Meeting (click here to read the story), Korea, where I participated in the naming of the newbuild Dhirubhai Deepwater KG1 (click here to read the story), as well as Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Singapore and Scotland.

That said, the move to Switzerland has definitely been a change, which is also a subject on my mind as I introduce this brand-new publication to you!

Beacon takes the place of our companywide magazine, Offshore Frontiers, and our companywide monthly newsletter, FIRST Monthly, at quite a significant cost savings to us and hopefully without sacrificing our commitment to providing you timely, accurate communications about what’s happening at our company and with the many co-workers who are the key to our success. Our Corporate Communications team is working to bring you the best of both worlds here in Beacon, as well as expanding content for you to read online. Let us know what you think about this, and every, issue by e-mailing corporatecommunications@deepwater.com.

As we continue to make our way through 2009, our focus remains on providing our customers with the best, safest service in the offshore industry. Nobody does that better than you – in fact, there are plenty of examples right here in this issue – and I thank you for your continued service, dedication and professionalism.
