CNOOC Petroleum Europe Ltd. has extended KCA Deutag’s Offshore business unit contract for the Scott platform that it operates in the U.K. North Sea, KCA Deutag reported Wednesday.

According to KCA Deutag, the contract extension – for drilling operations and maintenance services – went into effect March 1, 2019, and has an initial four-year term. CNOOC Petroleum Europe also holds an option to extend the contract by two years, the company added.

“The U.K. North Sea continues to be an important area of activity for us and we are committed to working with our partners to ensure that we make the most of the substantial reserves we still have in the U.K. basin,” Rune Lorentzen, president of KCA Deutag’s Offshore unit, said in a written statement emailed to Rigzone. “We have been the drilling contractor on the Scott platform since 1992 and are delighted with the commitment to retain us once again.”

CNOOC Petroleum operates the Scott platform to produce oil and gas from the Scott, Telford and Rochelle fields, according to CNOOC’s website. The platform is located in 466 feet (142 meters) of water approximately 117 miles (188 kilometers) northeast of Aberdeen, the company states.
