KCA Deutag has secured contracts worth around $110 million for its Land Drilling business in Pakistan, Russia, Kurdistan, south-eastern Europe and Germany.

 

The new business is made up of a mix of contract wins, allowing us to mobilize stacked rigs, and contract extensions.

 

The Group has secured a new five-year contract with a major oil company for operations in south-eastern Europe. The rig will start drilling operations in 2022 following mobilization from the UAE. Including options periods, the total contract value is $75 million. Also in Europe the T46 rig is mobilizing for a single well contract valued at $3m.

 

In Pakistan, contracts worth over $12 million have been placed for three rigs. The first of these is for the previously stacked T72 rig to undertake a workover. The second covers the T202 rig which is mobilizing from the UAE and the third is for the T75 rig which is in country but has been stacked for some time. Two of these contracts are with new clients in Pakistan.

 

In Russia, contracts for four client owned rigs, on which we provide Operations and Maintenance services, have been extended from October this year to March 2022. Additionally, a new work order has also been secured for the T391 rig this year for a further 8 wells during the remainder of 2021. The total contract value is over $13 million.

 

A new $7.4 million contract has also been secured in Kurdistan to mobilize the T63 rig with a client we were operating for prior to the Covid pandemic.

 

Simon Drew, President of Land, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded these contracts and contract extensions, which build on our long-standing relationships with a number of key customers in important territories for the Group.

 

“At the same time, we continue our development and deployment of our Well of Innovation technologies to improve the value we deliver to our oil and gas clients. This contributes to our ability to secure contracts such as these.

  

“Alongside this, we have and are developing new technologies as we leverage our Group-wide operating, manufacturing and engineering capabilities to make our rigs more energy efficient while at the same time move into renewable energy applications as the energy transition gathers pace and scale."

  Elton Group will invest approximately $121 million (FCfa 70 billion) as the concessionaire of the gas terminal at the Autonomous Port of Dakar, signifying the company’s growing role in Senegal’s gas-powered energy transition.   The multi-phased project will involve the construction of a gas terminal for the production, storage, regasification and distribution of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), featuring a storage capacity of 140,000 m³.   “The objective of the gas terminal will be to provide a logistical solution by providing LNG to the users that are energy producers, industries, cement plants, mining companies, LNG-powered vessels and neighboring countries,” said Abderrahmane Ndiaye, President of Elton.     In addition to strengthening the domestic gas value chain, the project will generate indirect and direct employment through its construction and operation. It will also represent one of the first projects of its kind in the region.    “Indeed, it would be the first port able to accommodate ships using LNG as fuel, which will give it a significant competitive advantage over other ports in the sub-region,” added Ndiaye.   Elton is a Senegalese petroleum distribution company with operations in Senegal and Gambia.

  PGS has been awarded a high-fidelity 3D exploration program by a supermajor offshore Egypt.   The survey will be acquired using an Extended Long Offset (ELO) configuration with Ramform Tethys towing a wide multi-sensor GeoStreamer spread with an additional source vessel located several kilometers ahead. This will enable efficient recording of offsets up to 16 kilometers critical for imaging deeper complex exploration targets. The source vessel will be towing a specially designed low frequency source.   The innovative ELO survey design combines optimal spatial sampling for better subsurface imaging together with long offset acquisition for accurate velocity model building. ELO is a cost competitive and efficient configuration compared to other solutions for imaging deep targets.   “We are very pleased to be awarded this contract, which secures PGS vessels to operate in Egyptian waters until May 2021, building on an extended campaign for several super majors since July 2020. In a rapidly changing energy market, exploration seismic requires increasingly advanced survey designs, such as the ELO configuration, to generate high quality seismic data in complex geologies.,” says Nathan Oliver, EVP Sales & Services of PGS.   Source: Africa Petroleum   Join our mailing list here We are #1 on Google and Bing for the "Largest Mobile Energy Network" Come join our community!

  Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi, and the President General Manager of the Algerian state company SONATRACH, Toufik Hakkar, met at the Eni headquarters in San Donato Milanese to take stock of common activities and sign various agreements in the exploration and production, research and development, decarbonization and training fields. These agreements mark a further step forward in strengthening the partnership between the two companies.   The first of the agreements signed aims to implement an ambitious program for the relaunch of exploration and development activities in the Berkine basin region and provides for the creation of a gas and crude oil development hub through a synergy with existing MLE-CAFC installations. This agreement is part of the process for the finalization of a new hydrocarbon contract in the basin, under the aegis of the new Algerian oil law which came into force in December 2019.   Claudio Descalzi and Toufik Hakkar also signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the development of the partnership between Eni and Sonatrach in the new technologies sector, with a focus on renewable energy, biofuels and hydrogen. This agreement aims to strengthen the cooperation already in place between the two companies in the technological field and continue the decarbonization path undertaken to support the transition towards a low carbon future.   Eni and Sonatrach also agreed to collaborate in other sectors such as staff training, through the signing of an agreement that provides for cooperation between Eni Corporate University and the Institut Algerien du Petrole for the implementation of training programs in the Upstream and new technologies related to the energy transition fields.   At the end of the meeting, Eni’s CEO thanked the PDG and the members of the Sonatrach delegation for their constant collaboration and relationship: “Today’s agreements represent the commitment made by our companies to strengthen a historic partnership, in compliance with a shared strategy to accelerate the development of decarbonization projects as part of our commitment of achieving our carbon neutrality goal.”   Eni has been present in Algeria since 1981 where is operator in 48 mining permits. With an equity production of 90,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, Eni is the main international company operating in the country.   Source: Africa Petroleum   Join our mailing list here We are #1 on Google and Bing for the "Largest Mobile Energy Network" Come join our community!
