ABERDEEN, UK -- BP has awarded Total Waste Management Alliance (TWMA) contracts totalling $6.4 million.

The contracts involve containment, handling, processing, recycling, and disposal of drill cuttings at remote offshore locations using TWMA-designed and operated equipment on the Transocean semisub Paul B Loyd Junior.

The agreement includes a two-year offshore waste management contract to provide thermal processing services, including bulk waste containment on the rig, with scope to install bulk storage tanks.

TWMA has adapted the cuttings storage transfer units to BP’s requirements with a custom-built frame that rests on a new weighing pad. The weight indicators, designed by TWMA in collaboration with BP, aim to improve efficiency by providing real-time tonnage readings while drilling.
