By securing this contract, we are continuing to make a positive impact on the environmental footprint associated with Norway’s oil and gas production.
“Effective and efficient drilling waste management is critical to the success of offshore drilling operations – not only in terms of environmental impact but in ensuring that drilling campaigns remain on schedule.”
