KCA Deutag’s T-66 Rig in Oman Receives Shell Land Rig of the Year Award

​KCA Deutag is delighted to announce that its T-66 land rig operating for PDO in Oman has received the Shell 2016 Land Rig of the Year Award.  

The rig delivered a strong operating performance in 2016, drilling eleven wells of which two were classified by Shell as best in class, two were in the top quartile for performance and nine of the eleven were drilled ahead of budget. 

Commenting on the award, David Troost Oman Country Manager said: The KCA Deutag team here in Oman takes great pride in receiving this award from Shell and congratulations should go to both the crew and the office support team, who continuously strive to deliver an exceptional level of performance.  We take nothing for granted, and whilst we are very pleased to win this award, the team continues to be fully energised to continue to deliver at the highest level."

Simon Drew, President of Land also said: "Congratulations to the T-66 team on winning this award in the face of fierce global competition. They have worked hard over recent years to be the best by working the KCA Deutag Way and I am delighted that this has been recognised by our client.  I would also like to acknowledge the performance of our other rigs operating for PDO in Oman, all of which have hugely improved their performance in the last year and could be challenging the T-66 for the "top spot" in the Shell ranking."
