KCA Deutag, the international drilling and engineering contractor and a global leader in platform drilling services, announces the award of significant drilling operation and maintenance contracts for work in the North Sea. These awards represent a long term commitment with core clients Total E&P UK, EnQuest and CNR International (CNRI).
KCA Deutag was awarded a contract with Total E&P UK to provide drilling operations and maintenance services on the Alwyn North and Dunbar platforms. Both contracts have already commenced and have a firm two year commitment with options for an extension of up to two years.
EnQuest has also signed a significant contract with KCA Deutag for a four year extension of its drilling operations and maintenance contract for both the Heather and Thistle platforms.
Lastly, a substantial contract extension was awarded by CNRI. This five year extension incorporates drilling and completion services contracts for the Ninian North Platform, South and Central Platforms, the Murchison Platform and the Tiffany Platform in the North Sea.
Rune Lorentzen, KCA Deutag’s President Offshore, said: “We have a very strong presence in the North Sea and it is great to see this continue. These new awards and contract extensions provide a great example of the on-going investment in the UK Continental Shelf and confirm KCA Deutag’s position as a leading platform services drilling contractor in the North Sea. These awards have highlighted our proven track record for safely delivering drilling operations in one of the harshest offshore environments.
“We are pleased to have been awarded these contracts as they will strengthen our commitment to the North Sea and provide the opportunity to continue developing existing relationships with our premier clients over the coming years.”
