KCA Deutag has been awarded a contract extension by Sakhalin Energy Investment Company for platform drilling services on its three platforms offshore Sakhalin Island in Russia. The four-year contract extension is effective from 1 June 2017 to 31 May 2021.
It covers the provision of a full supply chain service, including drilling and rig maintenance on the Lunskoye-A, Piltun-Astokhskoye-B and Molikpaq platforms, warehousing, management of spare parts and procurement.
KCA Deutag employs approximately 300 employees in Sakhalin, approximately 80% of whom are Russian nationals. The group’s offshore operations are supported by an onshore operation in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and a supply base in Kholmsk, where logistics hub and drill pipe management facilities are located. The group has been contracted with Sakhalin Energy since 2003.
Rune Lorentzen, President of Offshore and RDS, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract extension, which builds on a long-standing relationship with Sakhalin Energy, and are very much looking forward to continuing to deliver the highest standards of operational performance.”
Terje Løvereide, KCA Deutag Country Manager in Sakhalin, said, “This is great news for the company and the operation locally. It has been achieved thanks to the dedicated efforts of a highly professional team delivering quality performance both on and offshore.”
