As part of TWMA’s service, the one year contract (with a further one year option) will utilise the company’s award-winning TCC RotoMill® for offshore processing and EfficientC® for cuttings transfer and distribution.

The provision of bulk transportation involves directly pumping drill cuttings from storage tanks onboard the rig to a supply vessel, then transporting the drilling wastes to an onshore processing facility.

Neil Potter, Chief Operating Officer, said: “We have built a strong relationship with Apache over the last five years, and are delighted to have been selected to support them on the WilPhoenix project.

“We also supported a previous drilling campaign on this platform last year and have ongoing contracts with Apache including the provision of EfficientC® bulk transfer services on the Beryl Bravo and Alpha platforms.”
