Norway-based cleantech service provider Soiltech has won two contracts for drilling waste management on a jack-up rig owned by Noble Corporation, an offshore drilling player.

The new contracts, awarded by Wintershall Dea and Petrogas E&P, are both related to work on the Noble Resilient jack-up drilling rig. According to Soiltech, the occasion will mark the first time its sustainable technologies are installed on this rig.

Jan Erik Tveteraas, the CEO of Soiltech, commented: “We are delighted to report these contracts with Wintershall Dea and Petrogas E&P, which we see as a recognition of our efforts to develop technologies that contribute to lower carbon emissions and higher efficiency. We look forward to once again be working with Noble Drilling on two exciting projects.”
The deal with Wintershall Dea, enables the Norwegian firm to treat contaminated water during a plug and abandonment (P&A) campaign in the Danish sector of the North Sea. The estimated start-up of the project is in the second quarter of 2024 and the company will be using its slop treatment technology (STT). Wintershall Dea hired the Noble Resilient rig in January 2024 on a two-well plug and abandonment contract in Denmark.
On the other hand, the contract with Petrogas E&P allows Soiltech to provide cutting handling, slop treatment, and cleaning services in the UK. In line with this, the firm will provide a wide range of technologies and solutions for this drilling campaign, securing efficient and climate-friendly treatment of the drilling waste on Noble’s rig.

The rig was awarded a 120-day contract in 2023 by Petrogas in the UK North Sea at a day rate of $133,000. The two-well contract was slated to begin in 3Q 2024 and entailed four one-well extension options. The 2009-built Noble Resilient jack-up rig is of Gusto MSC CJ50 X100 MC design. With a maximum drilling depth of 30,000 ft, the jack-up can operate in water depths of up to 350 ft.

These deals with WintershallDea and Petrogas follow the one Soiltech secured with Shelf Drilling for waste management services in the North Sea.
