Petrobras to use AGR's environmentally friendly RMR™
Published 23.12.2010
BRAZIL - AGR Drilling Services has signed contracts with Petrobras to provide its RMR® services for the corporation's offshore operations.

The two-year deals initially apply to operations in the Rio Grande do Norte/Ceara region, based in Natal.

The Norwegian firm’s patented Riserless Mud Recovery system will provide Petrobras with a more eco-friendly way to drill the top-hole section of wells in these environmentally sensitive waters. In addition, the system will allow Petrobras to utilise dual-gradient drilling techniques for the next phase of drilling, inside the conductor string.

The RMR® equipment will be delivered to the Natal/Mossoro area in the second quarter of 2011. This is the first time the technology will be used off Brazil.

AGR DS is now a fully registered company in Brazil – AGR Drilling Services do Brasil LTDA – and has already hired its first local employee to provide technical and offshore operational support to the Petrobras contracts.

AGR DS has provided RMR® services on more than 130 wells worldwide.
