KNOC, AGR Drilling Services to Provide RMR Services Off Sakhalin

AGR Group

Korea National Oil Company (KNOC) and AGR Drilling Services have entered into a US $9m 2 year contract for RMR services. Drilling will be undertaken off Sakhalin Island later 2009 and in 2010.

This is the second time AGR Drilling Services will be supporting drilling operations in the region. The Riserless Mud Recovery system (RMR) technology is the only technology in the world capable of returning drilling fluids and cuttings topside without a riser system and hence avoiding environmental discharge.
