RDS has been awarded a new contract for the detailed design of a drilling facility for an offshore platform, the company said March 12.
The contract has a duration of 12 months with future follow on support executed from RDS’s central London offices. This is RDS’s first detail design award for a new Greenfield platform since the oil price decline in 2014.
“It is great to see confidence about the outlook returning to the industry, which is starting to give operators the confidence to sanction large projects once more. We are looking forward to building on a very successful FEED for our client and partners and to continuing to deliver on budget, within schedule and in line with our company vision for safe, effective, trouble-free operations,” Albert Allan, RDS senior vice president, said.
