A contract win with French oil giant Total is to safeguard existing jobs within north-east based firm TWMA, with the hope of creating a few more.
An oil and gas drilling waste management company, TWMA hold premises in Aberdeen, Peterhead and the Shetland Islands.
The agreed contract with Total to provide drill cutting waste management services will safeguard over 40 jobs, and could create another 20 new positions in the North Sea.
Tony Branch, chief executive officer at TWMA said: “We are proud of our long established relationship with Total which spans more than 14 years. It’s extremely encouraging to have been chosen to once again work alongside the team at Total to support its North Sea operations, which is testament to the exceptional service quality we continue to deliver.
TWMA have worked closely with Total in the UK, Norway and Angola since 2003.
The new deal with the French firm will see TWMA add their waste solutions expertise to a project that began in October last year.
Mr Branch added: “Total’s continued investment in complex developments drives the need for a proven technical solution to safely and efficiently manage drill cuttings generated from its drilling operations. This is a fantastic opportunity for TWMA to deliver that solution which also surpasses the necessary requirements for this project.
“We look forward to continuing our partnership with Total, and we’re pleased to further strengthen our position as the leading provider of drilling waste management services.”
