ABERDEEN, UK -- Maersk Oil has awarded Total Waste Management Alliance (TWMA), a three-year, $22.9-million contract to provide drill cuttings process and handling services offshore in the North Sea.

Under the agreement, TWMA will continue to provide drilling waste management services to the semisubmersible rig Noble Ton van Langeveld (NTVL) and the jackup Ensco 101. This involves use of TWMA TCC-RotoMill units which recycle the by-products of the drilling process in situ, removing the need for skip and ship operations.

The agreement carries options for a further two-year extension.

Both the TWMA TCC-RotoMill and its mobile counterpart, the TCC-RotoTruck, are cuttings process units designed to recycle drill cuttings breaking them down into oil, water, and solid components for re-use.
