Drilling and Engineering contractor KCA Deutag (KCAD) said today that a new North Sea contract would keep 70 of its employees busy.

Aberdeen-headquartered KCAD will provide drilling services on Total E&P UK’s North Alwyn and Dunbar platforms.

The agreement runs for an initial three years, and can be extended by a further two years.

KCAD said about 70 of its employees based onshore and offshore would work on the contract.

The value of the deal was not disclosed.

Rune Lorentzen, KCAD’s president of offshore, said: “We have been the drilling contractor on the Dunbar and North Alwyn platforms for approximately 20 years now, and are pleased that by working closely with our client we have yet again been able to offer them a cost effective yet innovative drilling solution with a firm focus on crew training and competence.”
