Aberdeen well construction specialist eyes further success after record-breaking 2021

DeltaTek Global, the Aberdeen-based well construction specialist, has reported a record-breaking 2021, boosted by a series of contract awards totalling £3 million.

Bosses said the business had experienced significant expansion in the last year, having entered new markets and delivered operations in the Gulf of Mexico, West Africa and Asia Pacific.

It has also cemented its position in the maturing UK and Norwegian markets, having completed a number of successful deployments and recently renewing a partnership agreement with Stavanger-based service provider GS Oilfield Solutions.

The company is also said to have evolved its capabilities to adapt to the “new operating environment” resulting from the pandemic, delivering its technology as a remote service to clients in Asia.

“The global growth, successful deployments and expansion of our intellectual portfolio is testament to DeltaTek’s commitment to continuous development and innovation as well as optimising operations and creating value for our customers.

“Following on from a successful 2021, we are heading into what is set to be a busy 2022. As we continue supporting our existing clients with ongoing drilling campaigns, we have already confirmed a number of projects which are due to start in 2022.”
