Global drilling and engineering contractor KCA Deutag has announced that its offshore business unit has been awarded a new drilling contract by Enquest Heather Limited for three platforms in the UK North Sea.
The UK-based drilling contractor said that multi-million dollar contract for the provision of platform drilling services on the Magnus, Thistle and Heather platforms came into effect on January 1.
It has an initial term of five years with two options to extend by one year, a press note said.
Rune Lorentzen, President of Offshore said, “KCA Deutag is delighted to have won this new contract. We have been working with Enquest on the Thistle and Heather platforms since 1990, and are pleased that this relationship continues to strengthen and that the quality of our work has been recognised with the additional award of the Magnus platform.”
Heather, Thistle and Magnus all lie north-east of Shetland.
