Neptune Energy today announced the award of a $21.4m contract to Borr Drilling, consolidating development, exploration and P&A activities in the Dutch and UK sectors of the North Sea, and reducing costs and operational emissions.
The activities will be carried out by Borr Drilling’s new Prospector 1 jack-up rig which is equipped with technologies that reduce carbon and nitrogen emissions from its operations by up to 95% .
The approach complements Neptune Energy’s commitment to working with supply chain partners to maximise efficiency and reduce operational emissions across its growing portfolio of assets and development projects.
The Prospector 1 uses a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System which reduces emissions of nitrogen (NOx) and carbon (COx).
The contract includes an option for an additional three wells after the initial seven-month drilling campaign is completed.
