Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) has awarded a contract to Archer for modular drilling unit and associated services in the UK Continental Shelf.
“We are delighted with the award of this contract which secures the rig work until late 2023.” said Dag Skindlo, Chief Executive Officer of Archer.
Archer will perform a 21 well plug and abandonment campaign for TAQA’s Northern North Sea Cormorant Alpha platform.
The integrated P&A service delivery will include services provided by Archer’s Engineering, Rentals, Oiltools and Wireline divisions, and will also require Archer to manage and deliver cementing, swarf and re-injection services from third-party providers.
The Archer Topaz is estimated to mobilise to Cormorant Alpha in H2 2021 following the removal of the existing Cormorant Alpha integral derrick equipment set, and reactivation activities on the platform by Archer’s Engineering division
