TWMA, provider of specialised drilling waste management services, has secured a five-year contract with Nexen Petroleum UK Limited for the provision of drilling waste management and associated services on multiple assets in the UK North Sea.

More than 50 TWMA personnel will be assigned to this contract which commenced at the start of the year. The project will see TWMA provide drill cuttings processing both onshore and offshore.
