AGR’s riserless technologies achieve milestones with 100th Gulf of Mexico well

AGR has achieved two highly significant milestones with their proven Riserless Mud Recovery (RMR™) system -- the successful application of riserless mud recovery technology on Statoil' s Krakatoa well in the Gulf of Mexico, and the global well count for RMR™ technology surpassing 100.

The Krakatoa well, in 2060 ft (620m) water depth, is the first application of AGR' s Riserless Mud Recovery system (RMR™) in the GOM, and represents a breakthrough for this well proven technology into a region with huge future potential. The RMR™ system was installed on Transocean' s brand new ultra-deepwater drillship Discoverer Americas and used to return drilling mud and cuttings to the surface while the top-
hole section of the Krakatoa well was drilled.

At the same time AGR is also celebrating over 100 wells drilled to date using RMR™ technology. The system has served clients globally in water depths from 40m to 1,500m, from semisubmersibles, jackups and now a deepwater drillship, and for a wide variety of client requirements.
