AGR has been contracted to provide riserless mud recovery services for an operator working off Sakhalin.

The US$3m contract will see AGR division AGR Enhanced Drilling provide its Riserless Mud Recovery (RMR) services (RMR) over this year’s summer drilling season.

The operating company is using RMR to help drilling operations in an area that has challenging top-hole conditions and stringent environmental regulations, says AGR.

The services enable operators to use weighted mud during top-hole drilling. All mud and cuttings are returned to the rig, with no discharge to the sea.

RMR and its sister technology CTS (Cuttings Transportation System) have together been deployed on more than 500 wells worldwide to date.
