TWMA Wins Waste Management Contract Offshore W. Africa

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Environmental waste management contractor TWMA has won its first offshore service contract in West Africa, signifying its intention to expand its business in this important region. 
The contract was awarded by AGR Petroleum Services and is worth around $1.6m over six months.  It covers supply, installation and operation of an integrated drilling waste management solution. 
TWMA will provide a range of solids control technologies to AGR for its drilling campaign in the Hyperdynamics' concession offshore the Republic of Guinea.
The drillship Jasper Explorer has been contracted by AGR, on behalf of Hyperdynamics, for this exploration project.  It will leave Singapore where it is currently based for Conakry in Guinea later this month with drilling due to commence in August.
The service package, which includes cuttings dryers, centrifuges and pumps along with TWMA’s field proven CCDS cuttings handling, storage and transfer system has been deployed from TWMA’s facilities in Aberdeen, UK, and Egypt.
A crew of up to 15 technicians will be mobilized from Aberdeen to install the equipment on the drillship and a team will remain onboard for the duration of AGR’s drill programme. 
Ronnie Garrick, managing director of TWMA, said: “West Africa is a priority region for our ongoing internationalisation plans and this landmark contract offshore Guinea provides a basis for us to continue expanding our waste management services in the region.
“Our ability to provide a complete solids control package to AGR and deliver short mobilisation times for projects worldwide sets us apart from other companies.  We are delighted that AGR has chosen to work with TWMA again and look forward to this latest campaign.
“As we continue to strengthen and build relations in West Africa through a focused and dedicated resource for the region, we are confident of winning further new business for all our service lines.”
