Vår Energi awards Enhanced Drilling contracts for CTS and RMR®

VÅR ENERGI, one of the largest operating companies on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS), has signed a framework agreement with Enhanced Drilling to provide Cutting Transportation System (CTS) and Riserless Mud Recovery (RMR®) services on Vår Energi operated fields.

Zero discharge

RMR® ensures all mud and cuttings are returned to the rig, with zero discharge to the sea. The result is a safer and more stable top-hole, drilled with minimal environmental impact. CTS and RMR® systems have been used on over 900 wells worldwide.
The technology and services from Enhanced Drilling will be used on the Balder Field, Goliat Field and various exploration wells on the NCS. Enhanced Drilling’s CTS technology enables the operators to take cuttings, cement, mud, clay and other deposits away from the well in a safe and efficient matter and dump it on a designated location on seabed. 

'Reliable technology'

Kjetil Lunde, Enhanced Drilling’s CEO said:’ We are delighted that Vår Energi has chosen to use Enhanced Drilling’s technology and services for a number of their wells on the NCS. Another sign that our solutions and technologies are reliable and trusted’.

Technologies and services

As well as CTS and RMR®, Enhanced Drilling is known for their EC-Drill® Managed Pressure Drilling system and service which is based on a Controlled Mud Level (CML) technique.
Enhanced Drilling, which is headquartered in Straume just outside of Bergen, Norway, has facilities in the USA, Australia and Azerbaijan to serve their global operations.
