KCA Deutag has won a three-year contract extension for drilling on four platforms in the North Sea.
The contract is for the provision of drilling operations and maintenance services and has a two-year extension option.
Earlier this year, the firm said it had begun a recruitment process for operational staff in Norway.
Rune Lorentzen, president of Offshore and RDS, said: “We are delighted to be awarded this contract which cements a long standing relationship. In today’s highly competitive marketplace, our priority is not just to deliver best in class drilling for our clients but also to work with them to deliver excellent value in this low oil price environment.”
