Third Client Selects AGR’s EC-Drill (Norway)

Third Client Selects AGR’s EC-Drill (Norway)

A third major operator will use AGR’s Managed Pressure Drilling system EC-Drill® following its success off Cuba.

The move follows successful operations for Petronas and another client using EC-Drill®. Petronas has now assigned its contract for the system to the third operator.

EC-Drill® is a step-change technology which solves the long-standing challenge of drilling in narrow pressure windows in deep-water wells. It provides a far greater degree of control, enhances safety and enables operators to cost-effectively hit deep targets that would be impractical to reach with more traditional drilling methods.

Bernt Eikemo, Vice President Asia Pacific EDS-ORS, part of AGR, said: “We provide a unique solution that is simple to implement in terms of equipment and procedures.

“Having delivered excellent results for Petronas and another client, it’s exciting knowing we will be providing the same to our new EC-Drill® customer.

“This significant contract win is another indication that we are moving towards the forefront of the marketplace for managed pressure drilling solutions.”
