History in Turkmenistan
Scomi began operations in Turkmenistan in 2005, and has been awarded three contracts by Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd alone for work in Turkmenistan.
In 2007, Scomi was awarded a contract by Dragon Oil to provide drilling fluids. “With this contract, Scomi has captured more than 80 percent share in both the Drilling Fluids and Drilling Waste Management market in Turkmenistan for up to two years.”[ii]
Current Scope of Operations
The most recent of Scomi’s contracts with Petronas, which comprises services in Drilling Fluids and Drilling Waste Management, is a three-year contract that began in May 2008.[iii] Valued at approximately RM157 million,[iv] or over $46 million,[v] this contract solidified Scomi’s role as a leading oilfield services company in Turkmenistan.
As of August 2010, Scomi Oiltools and Derrick Corporation Ltd. separated, concluding long-term collaboration in countries around the world, including Turkmenistan.[vi] Derrick Solutions International lists Turkmenistan on its website summary of the countries in which it is “mobilizing personnel and inventory.”[vii]
