DeltaTek announces inaugural North Sea contract win
The firm will provide cementing services via its SeaCure technology, in support of Siccar Point’s drilling and field development operations.
Well construction specialist DeltaTek Global has been awarded a two-year contract from Aberdeen-based operator, Siccar Point Energy.
Operating on a call off basis – and with an optional contract extension - DeltaTek will provide cementing services via its SeaCure technology, in support of Siccar Point’s drilling and field development operations within the North Sea.
SeaCure is a system which delivers stabbed-in, inner string cementing for subsea wells. The innovation of DeltaTek CEO and founder, Tristam Horn, it provides a range of major cost and time benefits to drilling and field development operations - including elimination of shoetracks and clean out runs, improved cement placement and reduced displacement, offline casing pressure testing, and improved drill out performance, with minimised risk of bottom hole assembly damage.
Commenting on the win, Horn said: “Following on from the success of initial ‘proof of concept’ trials earlier this year, and with a number of live field trials taking place this summer, we are now in a position to announce a contract award. The rate at which SeaCure has come to market is - in itself - succinct illustration that its advantages are impressing those who operate within the North Sea and the deep-water west of Shetland acreage.
“The significance of Siccar Point’s early adoption of DeltaTek’s approach to offshore cementing cannot be underestimated. By supporting - and benefiting - from our innovative technology, this represents a truly critical milestone in the DeltaTek journey.”
Colin Higgins, wells manager at Siccar Point Energy, said: “Siccar Point Energy has found DeltaTek to be both attentive and responsive in fine tuning the SeaCure product to meet our specific needs. We are looking forward to implementing the SeaCure system on the forthcoming Lyon exploration well and sharing the results with the wider community.”
Launched in 2015, DeltaTek’s disruptive innovations, SeaCure and ArticuLock were created in response to the growing requirement for efficiently implemented, intelligent, cost saving and risk reducing products.
