TWMA awarded North Sea contract with Azinor Catalyst


TWMA, a leading provider of drill cuttings and slop handling, management and treatment solutions, has been awarded a contract estimated to be worth around £1million with UKCS-focused E&P company, Azinor Catalyst Limited (“Azinor Catalyst”).

The project, which commences in August 2017, will see TWMA provide drill cuttings containment and processing services on the Ocean Guardian rig in the Central North Sea. Azinor Catalyst has contracted the semi-submersible rig for the drilling of two wells in 2017. Anticipated spud of the Partridge exploration well is in August, followed by the spud of the Agar appraisal well in September.

TWMA is providing offshore personnel, drill cuttings containment and onshore drill cuttings processing as part of a three-year contract, which has two additional one-year options.

Marlene Mitchell, Sales Director at TWMA, said: “We are very pleased to secure this contract, which marks our first work with Azinor Catalyst. TWMA will support this drilling activity by safely and effectively managing drill cuttings, through containment offshore and processing onshore.

“We will be utilising a number of our proprietary technologies including EfficientC®, which will allow us to collect and contain the drill cuttings offshore before transport onshore. From there, drill cuttings will be treated by the TCC RotoMill® at our Peterhead facility, thus minimising the environmental impact of the drilling programme.

“TWMA has built a strong international track record since our inception in 2000, and we are proud that this reputation continues to be recognised by new and existing clients.”
