Aberdeen well management company secures contract to build Senegal's first offshore oil rig



An Aberdeen-based well management firm has secured a four year contract in Senegal for an undisclosed sum.

Zenith Energy was awarded the multi-year contract by Woodside Energy for the services on the Sangomar Field Development off the coast of the West African country.

It is for the provision of drilling and the engineering of oil wells and support service, which will create up to 25 new jobs during the next four years.

Consisting of the drilling and completion of 23 subsea development wells, it is poised to be Senegal’s first offshore oil development.

Woodside has contracted Diamond Offshore for two well-based contracts for the drill rigs and other firms with the drilling and completions campaign set to begin mid-2021.

The contract will be serviced by Zenith’s teams in the UK and Australia.

Martin Booth, managing director at Zenith Energy, said: “We are delighted to be supporting an operator like Woodside in the final preparation and then execution phases of their development in Senegal.

“We look forward to being part of the team, providing our experienced deepwater personnel to support the delivery of this campaign.”
