Substantial orders

Bentec, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of drilling rigs and oilfield equipment, has won three major multi-million dollar contracts, as well as confirming its further expansion into the substantial offshore market.

The highlights of the wins include the first complete drilling rig to be built by Bentec for Caspian Sea offshore operations, a contract award for three 320 ton Cluster Slider rigs and indications of further demand from Russia with an order for 13 Top Drives, bringing the total number to 63 sold in Russia so far.

Dirk Schulze, Chief Executive Officer of Bentec said: “We are delighted to have secured such substantial orders in these difficult times for our industry and are very much looking forward to working with these clients. These new contracts send out a strong signal to the market, not only in Russia but beyond, and are testament to our strategy of concentrating on providing premium quality at competitive prices, whilst reducing the total cost of ownership for our clients.”
