Energy Voice

Aberdeen firm Rig Control Products (RCP) said yesterday it had netted a £300,000 deal to supply a Singaporean company with oilfield equipment.

RCP, which also has a base in Singapore, will also install the four pieces of integrated well control kit on rigs as part of the contract.

The system is made up of a hydraulic console with a remotely-operated panel, which is used to operate and control dual choke valves, among other things.

The gear will be built and delivered over the next six months, with the first handover taking place this month.

RCP managing director Ben Knight said: “Yet again the Aberdeen and Singapore offices have worked together seamlessly to offer unmatched engineering and technical support to the client throughout the design process.

“Further discussions with the client are due to take place early next month with a view to working with them on future projects which is great news for RCP in these difficult times.”

The award comes six months after RCP scooped a £240,000 deal to put a blowout preventer control system on an unspecified Scandinavian company’s drillship operating in south-east Asia.
