TOTAL E&P UK extends use of RMR™ in £4.5 mio deal

One of the largest operators in the UK sector of the North Sea has extended its contract for AGR’s Riserless Mud Recovery system (RMR™) by four years.

TOTAL E&P UK’s multiple-well deal with Norwegian solutions provider AGR also includes the firm’s Cutting Transportation System (CTS™).

The extension, worth approximately £4.5 mio (NOK 40 mio), takes the contract period up to the end of July 2015.

TOTAL E&P UK, an exploration and production subsidiary of the TOTAL Group, was an early adopter of RMR™ technology, first signing up to the system in 2006. This latest contract extension follows an earlier one made in 2009.

David Hine, EVP of AGR’s Enhanced Drilling Solutions, said: “We’re delighted with the continued commitment to our technologies and services by TOTAL E&P UK. It is also a further endorsement of the added value created through our RMR™ and CTS™ solutions.”

RMR™ has been an industry changer since it was introduced. It enables engineered mud to be used in the top-hole section of a well, with all mud and cuttings being returned to the rig. The top-hole section can be drilled more safely, quickly and with far less impact on the environment.

CTS™, meanwhile, enables operators to take cuttings, cement, mud, clay and other deposits away from the well area, keeping templates debris free. Because of this, it has had a major impact on the validity of drilling operations in areas that have been deemed as being particularly environmentally sensitive.

AGR will soon surpass the 500-well landmark for the deployment of its RMR ™ and CTS ™ systems.
