KENERA TO DELIVER FIVE TOP DRIVE DRILLING SYSTEMS IN SAUDI ARABIA
Kenera, a business unit ofd KCA Deutag, has been awarded a contract to deliver five top drive systems to a Saudi Arabian drilling contractor for new build rigs which will operate at a major Unconventional gas project in Saudi Arabia.
Designed and manufactured by the company’s rig equipment business, Bentec GmbH, the top drives offer proven operational performance and reliability with proprietary software that optimises the drilling process and ultimately reduces well delivery times. The Bentec top drive solution is also enhanced through Bentec rigCARE™, the digital service platform for remote monitoring and troubleshooting.
Positioning Kenera as a key technology partner for drilling operations in the Middle East, this recent award builds on a number of previously secured contracts for top drive and iron roughneck solutions in Saudi Arabia. Commissioning and support will be provided out of the newly established Kenera service centre in Dammam.
Kenera operates across the Middle East providing tailor made drilling solutions including new build rig design, on-demand facilities engineering services, rig equipment and component supply and aftermarket services.
