Global drilling and engineering contractor KCA Deutag (“KCAD”) today announces that its land drilling operation has won new contracts and contract extensions worth approximately $110M. These contracts are for onshore drilling in the Middle East, Russia and Africa.

Middle East

In the Middle East, KCAD has been successful in winning a total of seven years of contract extensions for five heavy rigs operating in Oman. The extension for each rig ranges from one to two years. In addition to this, we have also signed a contract with a new client in Oman for one of our 2000hp rigs. This is for a fixed term of six months.

Oman is a major market for the group and, following the acquisition of the Omani and Saudi Arabian businesses of Dalma Energy LLC last year, we now have 24 rigs in-country. KCAD’s drilling rig and oilfield equipment manufacturer, Bentec, also has a substantial manufacturing facility located in Nizwa, which operates as IDTEC.

Russia

In Russia, our land operation has been awarded a new drilling contract for a 1000hp rig with one of the country’s leading integrated oil companies. The contract has a fixed term of one year. In addition to our 17 land rigs in Russia, KCAD is the drilling contractor on three platforms offshore Sakhalin Island.

Africa

In Nigeria one of our 700hp rigs has won a one year contract to carry out a workover program, with a further one year extension option. Additionally a second rig has won a short term contract for a three month programme. This 1500hp rig will be operating in an area of Nigeria where we see increasing activity. This is the rig’s second contract in quick succession in this location and there are many other active opportunities that we are currently pursuing.

KCAD has also had some success in Algeria where we were awarded a short term contract extension for one of our 1500hp Speed rigs.

Commenting on these contract awards Simon Drew, President of Land, said, “We are delighted to announce these contract awards and look forward to delivering value for our clients through safe, effective and trouble-free operations.”
