TWMA Wins UKCS Contract with Premier Oil
Drilling services firm TWMA announce Tuesday that it has secured a substantial contract with UK operator Premier Oil, following a comprehensive tender process.
The $3.2 million project is already under way, according to TWMA, providing 'skip and ship' services to transport drill cuttings and associated materials produced by Premier’s offshore drilling operations on the WilPhoenix (mid-water semisub) rig in the central North Sea to TWMA's thermal processing plant at Peterhead for treatment via TWMA's TCC RotoMill technology. This will continue when the rig moves to the West of Shetland.
The contract will run until August 2014 with the option of two one-year extensions.
TWMA sales director Rob O'Neill commented in a statement:
"On an increasing basis, operators are realising the benefits of integrating a full processing package into their drilling campaigns both onshore and offshore.
"Our TCC RotoMill technology is tried and tested and a perfect fit for Premier’s drilling campaigns. The UK continues to be an important region for TWMA and we look forward to working with Premier in what we hope will be the first of many projects."
