RDS secures engineering, MSA contracts

Posted on 06 August 2013

RDS, the rig design engineering division of KCA Deutag, has been awarded contracts valued at $42 million for engineering and design services in the North Sea and a global master services agreement (MSA). One is for detail design and follow-on engineering for Statoil’s Mariner platform drilling facilities, and the other is to provide engineering support for ENSCO Services Ltd.

“These new awards provide a great example of the ongoing investment in the UK Continental Shelf,” Simon Drew, senior VP at RDS, said.

The contract for the Mariner platform facilities is with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), which is providing EPC services to Statoil. DSME also signed an agreement with RDS for front end engineering design of the Bressay platform. The two contracts have a commitment period of 29 months and 9 months, respectively.

“We are pleased to be working with both new clients and look forward to developing and strengthening these relationships as we continue to grow our UK and global business,” Mr Drew said
