AGR Group announced that it had entered its first jackup agreement for its Riserless Mud Recovery (RMR) technology, on the jackup rig Constellation II in Egypt, with BP. Previously the RMR, which is designed to re-circulate and reuse the drilling fluids that are needed when drilling top hole sections of a well, has been exclusively used on semi-sub rigs.

Jermund Kleppe of AGR Group and project leader on the Egypt well said, ďThe tophole the RMR will be used on is at 19 metres depth at the Rahamat Field outside Alexandria. The RMR was selected as it balances operational pressure in the well enabling drilling with heavier mud, while offering a virtually zero discharge solution. In the absence of the RMR, drilling of the well would have been considerably more expensive.Ē

As at December 2007, since its introduction the RMR has been used to drill 58 wells, in locations including the Barents Sea, the Caspian Sea, the North Sea and in the Asia Pacific region. BP is using the technology everywhere it expects challenges when drilling topholes.
