Scomi adds mud-storage capability

ABERDEEN-BASED Scomi Oiltools (Europe) is launching a drilling-fluid division in the UK with a new quayside plant in the Granite City.

The 10,000-barrel capacity mud-storage facility at Aberdeen harbour’s Pocra Quay is being completed and is due to go into operation next month.

Scomi, based at Denmore House, Bridge of Don, will be offering an integrated package of well-fluid and drilling-waste management.

The development will generate about 20 jobs in the short term with up to 50 in the longer term.

Drilling-fluid manager Bruce Ewen said: “This is an excellent market for Scomi. We have a very active drilling-waste management product line and we will be integrating fluids with this to offer a seamless service to our clients.”

Scomi Oiltools, a subsidiary of Malaysia-based Scomi Group, is a provider of high-performance drilling-fluid and drilling-waste management services. It has more than 50 years’ experience and a global presence at 65 sites across 35 countries.

Two new guidelines will be launched at the event: guidance for corrosion management in oil and gas production and processing and a corrosion threats guide for upstream oil and gas production plant.
