Geoplex Drillteq Ltd. has purchased the rigs and will take over operations while receiving technical support services from KCA Deutag to ensure proper service delivery for clients. Arrangements have been put in place to support KCA Deutag employees and contractors to transfer to the new operation or take up other opportunities with the company.
Simon Drew, President Land, commented: "After a successful history of operations in Nigeria, the sale of these assets allows us to build our business in the Middle East - where we currently operate 40 rigs - and follows the recent announcement that we have secured a contract with Petroleum Development Oman to invest around $100m in building four new land rigs against a long term, 10-year commitment.
We have developed a positive working relationship with Geoplex during our discussions and are confident in Geoplex's capability as an organization and will work with them to provide technical support for continued delivery to our clients and people."
