Scomi Bags $27.66M Deal from PTTEPI for Myanmar's Zawtika Gas Project

Malaysia's Scomi Energy Services Bhd bagged a $27.66 million (MYR 113.51 million) three-year contract from PTTEP International Ltd (PTTEPI) Myanmar to provide drilling fluids together with solids control products, equipment and engineering solutions for the Zawtika gas project offshore Myanmar, Bernama news agency reported Monday.

The contract covered Phases 1B and 1C of the Zawtika Development drilling campaign, with work scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter this year, according to PTTEPI.

PTTEPI would use Scomi Energy's new line of biodegradable base oil from the PlatDrill series in its drilling fluids systems for the offshore drilling campaign.

Scomi Energy's President-Market Units, Oilfield Services, Wan Ruzlan Iskandar, said extensive laboratory tests with various simulations of drilling conditions ranging from normal to extreme high-pressure, high-temperature wells had indicated that this Platdrill oil series would enhance drilling performance, and ultimately reduce drilling cost. According to Scomi Energy, the green-based oil from PlatDrill series was environmentally-friendly, biodegradable and non-toxic when compared with conventional hydrocarbon base oil.

"It has been recently classified as readily biodegradable with a non-toxic ranking by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research-National Institute of Oceanography, India," Scomi Energy said, as cited in the Bernama report.
