KCA Deutag Wins New Drilling Contracts in Russia

Global drilling and engineering contractor KCA Deutag’s (KCAD) land drilling operation has won three new contracts in Russia worth approximately $168 million. These contracts are for eight high-performance land rigs, seven of which were previously built by Bentec, KCAD’s rig and oilfield equipment manufacturer.

The first contract is with an existing client for five of those rigs to carry out drilling operations in two fields in Eastern Siberia. Each rig is expected to drill for varying periods of between 3 and 4 years. The contract increases the number of rigs currently operating for this client from four to five. 

The next contract is for two 1500-HP Cluster Slider rigs, which will drill in Northern Russia. It is an extension to an existing contract and will run until 31 December 2021.

KCAD has also won a new contract for one of its 2000-HP land rigs to drill four wells in Southern Russia, with an estimated duration of 5 months per well.
