TWMA Secures £1.5million North Sea Contract with Apache


Global integrated drilling waste management and environmental services firm, TWMA, has recently secured a £1.5million contract with Apache on the WilPhoenix platform in the North Sea Beryl field.

As part of TWMA’s fully integrated waste management solution, the one year (with one year option) contract will utilise the company’s award-winning TCC RotoMill® for offshore processing and EfficientC® for cuttings transfer and distribution.

Chief operating officer, Neil Potter, said: “We have built a strong relationship with Apache over the last five years, and are delighted to have been selected to support the WilPhoenix project. We also supported a previous drilling campaign on this platform last year and are currently providing a Bulk Transfer service on Apache’s Beryl Bravo and Alpha platforms, demonstrating the strength of our relationship with this major international E&P company.”

The provision of bulk transportation involves directly pumping drill cuttings from storage tanks onboard the rig to a supply vessel, then transporting the drilling wastes to an onshore processing facility.

Neil added: “This continuation of our services across Apache’s North Sea projects is major recognition of our ability to offer the best possible integrated solutions for effectively managing drilling waste both on and offshore, and testament to the strong relationships we consistently build with our customers.”
