CIS Wins Second Drilling Contract in a Week

Craig International Supplies Ltd. (CIS), a division of The Craig Group, has secured a contract worth GBP 1 million by Dolphin Drilling only days after landing a GBP 3 million contract in the same sector.

The oilfield procurement specialists have been awarded a two year extension to provide oilfield consumables and third party procurement.

CIS Managing Director, David Allan, says: "There is no doubt that the upturn in drilling activity in the North Sea is having a positive effect on our business, both in terms of increased business from existing customers and additional business from new customers.

"CIS has experienced rapid growth in the North Sea and internationally, more than tripling our turnover in recent years. We are firmly on target to reach GBP 20 million this year, with international business accounting for 65%."

The company, one of the nine divisions of global shipping and oilfield services group - The Craig Group, has transformed itself from an Aberdeen firm supplying companies operating in the North Sea to a truly international player with contracts in Angola, Nigeria, The Congo, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, the US and Norway.

CIS provides a comprehensive range of products and services to oilfield operations and projects. From its considerable inventory and an extensive database of Quality Assured suppliers, CIS can supply the entire range of products for all seismic, drilling, exploration and production.
