AkerBP, IKM agree to mud recovery services

Written by  OE Staff Monday, 14 November 2016 10:25

IKM Cleandrill has been awarded a three-year frame agreement with AkerBP for riserless closed loop mud recovery services.

The initial operations under this contract will be production well drilling on the Alvheim development from the Transocean Arctic semisubmersible rig, with potential for additional exploration and development drilling. 

IKM Cleandrill will provide MRR (mud recovery without riser) mud recovery systems to undertake these services. The MRR represents the latest generation of mud recovery equipment. Both shallow and deepwater versions of the MRR will be available through the contract to suit AkerBP’s specific requirements. The MRR system will be installed onto the rig in early 2017.
