Santos to use AGR’s RMR® off Australia
Published 02.08.2012
Santos has signed up to use AGR’s Riserless Mud Recovery (RMR®) system.

rmr
The contract is for one exploration well to be drilled in Q3 2012 in the Browse Basin off North West Australia.  
 
The main reason for using RMR® on this well is to be able to drill a deep 26” section with a closed loop mud system.
 
RMR® (system example pictured) enables the use of weighted, engineered mud in the top-hole section. All mud and cuttings are returned to the rig with no discharge to the seabed. The top-hole section can be drilled more safely, quickly and with less impact on the environment.
 
This will be the first time Santos is using the RMR® from AGR’s Enhanced Drilling Solutions (EDS) 
 
Bernt Eikemo, AGR’s Vice President of the Enhanced Drilling Solutions (EDS) division (Asia Pacific), said: “AGR is looking forward to working together with Santos on this well. We hope that this is the start of a long, successful relationship with Santos in Australia.”
 
He added: “Our previous experiences with several operators in the Browse Basin and the North West Shelf have shown that RMR together with a proper engineered mud system gives excellent hole cleaning and the ability to drill very long riserless sections.”
 
RMR®, together with its sister technology the Cutting Transportation System (CTS™), has been deployed on more than 500 wells worldwide to date (logo pictured).
