TWMA secures first contract with Spirit Energy at Grove field

01 Mar 2021

Specialist drilling waste management company, TWMA, has secured a seven-figure contract with leading exploration and production company, Spirit Energy.

The first scope of a five-year contract will see TWMA provide drilling waste management services on the harsh-environment jack-up rig Maersk Resolve as Spirit Energy drills the Grove North East well in the Southern Sector of the North Sea. The rig, currently in Denmark, will mobilise to the UK in Q2 2021.

The contract, which carries the option of two one-year extensions, marks TWMA’s first project with the E&P company and includes the full breadth of the company’s service lines. This gives Spirit Energy access to TWMA’s skip and ship, bulk cuttings transfer, NORM services and drill cuttings processing services with its award winning TCC RotoMill®. The TCC RotoMill® can be deployed offshore at the rig site and allows operators and rig contractors to treat drill cuttings at source eliminating both the cost and carbon footprint associated with ship to shore methods.

The TCC RotoMill® unit ensures uninterrupted high ROP drilling in the harshest offshore environments by eliminating any waiting on weather time associated with drill cuttings handling. Processing drill cuttings offshore improves the risk profile of drilling projects by reducing lifting operations by up to 95%. Furthermore, removing the need for shipping drilling waste onshore negates the need for supply vessels port access, and onshore trucking and processing which lowers total cost of waste ownership and carbon emissions for operators by up to 50%, compared with the traditional skip and ship method.

TWMA is a market leader in the provision of integrated drilling waste management and environmental solutions to the oil and gas industry. The company delivers operational efficiencies by using the latest technology to optimise drilling operations and effectively process drilling waste to the highest environmental standards.
