Santos to use AGR's RMR off Australia
Santos has signed up to use AGR's Riserless Mud
Recovery (RMR) system.
The contract is for one exploration well to be
drilled in Q3 2012 in the Browse Basin off North West
The main reason for using RMR on this well is to be
able to drill a deep 26" section with a closed loop
RMR enables the use of weighted, engineered mud in
the top-hole section. All mud and cuttings are
returned to the rig with no discharge to the seabed.
The top-hole section can be drilled more safely,
quickly and with less impact on the environment.
This will be the first time Santos is using the RMR
from AGR's Enhanced Drilling Solutions (EDS)
