Offshore environmental management services firm Tems has secured two new contracts worth a total of more than £1 million for work in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
Aberdeen-based Tems, which stands for Turnkey Environmental Management Services, said the new work was with exploration and production companies headquartered in the US.
Both projects are already under way, with each scheduled to last at least a year.
Tems said it was providing continuous environmental compliance and drilling performance management services on both contracts.
Managing director Bill Walkingshaw said: “Reducing the cost of drilling while maintaining high safety and environmental standards continues to be at the forefront of oil and gas exploration and production.
“Our track record for assisting clients in exceeding compliance targets, delivering significant savings on drilling costs, reducing drilling days and lessening an asset’s carbon footprint has contributed to securing these two new contracts.
“On numerous other projects we have achieved substantial cost savings for clients during drilling, in some cases as much as £600,000 per well.
“The scale of savings varies from well to well, and can depend on the solids control equipment and drilling fluids in use and the geology of the well being drilled.
“Our guidance on environmental compliance prior to and during a drilling campaign also offers peace of mind to clients.”
He added: “The variance in the oil price is necessitating operators to review all options for improving drilling efficiency, without impacting safety or the environment.”
Tems – launched in 2017 – specialises in rig audits, drilling fluid systems control and optimisation, waste management planning and tank cleaning.
The company has operations in Aberdeen, Houston in the US and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
