KCA Deutag has entered into the offshore Canadian drilling sector following the award of its first contract in Canada with ExxonMobil Canada Properties.

KCA Deutag was awarded a multi-million dollar contract for the Hebron Platform drilling operations and maintenance services contract. The contract will commence with an estimated three-year pre-operations phase, followed by a nine-year operations and maintenance program, with an option to extend.

KCA Deutag’s expansion into Eastern Canada is a key strategic success for the business and capitalizes on the work carried out by RDS, the rig engineering and design division of KCA Deutag. RDS has been carrying out the front-end engineering and detailed design of the Hebron rig facilities since 2010.

“The award of our first contract in Canada by ExxonMobil Canada Properties is an excellent result,” Rune Lorentzen, President of Offshore for KCA Deutag, said. “We look forward to continuing to develop a strong working relationship as we work on this project together.”
