ABERDEEN, UK -- Derrick Services Ltd (DSL) has won a $3-million contract from CTF of Tunisia for engineering and project planning for an offshore platform rig removal program.

DSL will decommission the CTF Rig 05 from Platform 2 in Tunisian waters. This contract follows recent FEED studies which DSL performed for operators Serept/OMV. Decommissioning of the rig, including the mud systems, bulk storage, and prime movers, should start in December.

Mike Smith, DSL’s managing director, said: “Having decommissioned and relocated this rig for CTF in 2008, we are delighted that CTF have again chosen DSL to provide the engineering, project management, and planning for this project, as well as the anticipated supply of all the offshore construction services associated with both the decommissioning and relocation of the rig to the next platform.

DSL opened a base in Abu Dhabi last year to serve the Middle East region.
