Transocean Expands Corporate Card Program


Transocean’s Supply Chain team is in the process of expanding the company’s corporate credit card program to locations outside of the U.S.

With a focus on customer service, the team in January launched training courses for new cardholders and approvers. If you need this training, or even a refresher, live sessions are offered the second Tuesday of each month in the company’s 4 Greenway Plaza location (Houston) or via Webex upon request (see their RIGCentral web section for details).

The team also introduced a number of new ways to get the information you need quickly, including a generic email account ( an after-hours line for emergency help (+1 713-232-7170) and a new section of RIGCentral ( that features training schedules, policies, updated training manuals, quick reference guides, contacts for assistance, card applications and much more.

The company’s current card provider, Bank of America, is in the process of upgrading the application you use to complete transactions. Card users will be offered training materials and classes related to this, too. Look for more info later in the year.
