Total E&P Extends Contract for AGR's Riserless Mud Recovery

TOTAL E&P signed its first contract with AGR Drilling in 2006. TOTAL E&P UK has extended the contract for a further 2 years through 2011 to utilize AGR's Riserless Mud Recovery (RMR™) for top hole drilling. Up to 8 wells are estimated to be covered over the next two years.

TOTAL E&P UK Limited is one of the largest operators in the UK sector of the North Sea in terms of production and reserves, and is one of the largest exploration and production subsidiaries of the TOTAL Group.

"As one of the early adopters of the RMR technology TOTAL E&P UK are an important customer to us. Consequently we see the extension of services with TOTAL E&P UK as a significant endorsement of not only the Riserless Mud Recover (RMRTM) technology but of our business practices, quality and customer commitment," commented David Hine, Vice President Sales & Marketing.
