CNR International Ltd. (CNRI) has awarded KCA Deutag a five-year contract extension for three platforms operating in the U.K. North Sea, KCA Deutag reported Monday.

In a written statement emailed to Rigzone, KCA Deutag noted the multimillion-pound contract provides for drilling operations and maintenance services on CNRI’s Ninian South, Ninian Central and Tiffany platforms.

Located in the Northern North Sea, the Ninian South and Ninian Central fixed platforms process crude oil from the Ninian, Lyell and Columbia fields and export it to the Sullom Voe Terminal in the Shetland Islands via the Ninian Pipeline System, according to CNRI’s website. CNRI also states that a third platform in the Ninian field – Ninian North – is undergoing decommissioning.

The Tiffany platform in the Central North Sea exports crude oil from the Tiffany, Toni and Thelma fields to Cruden Bay in northeastern Scotland via the Brae-Forties oil pipelines, CNRI also notes on its website.

“We are delighted to have won this new contract with CNRI,” stated Rune Lorentzen, president of KCA Deutag’s Offshore business unit. “For several years now KCA Deutag, CNRI and other contractors have adopted a one-team approach, drawing on all our expertise, to drive a culture of innovation and efficiency throughout the operation and maximize oil production. This has been hugely successful and we look forward to working together to continue this success in the future.”
