STEP Offshore appointed exclusive distributor for

03.05.2010 | 9:06 Uhr | Globenewswire Europe
Key Points:

* STEP Offshore given exclusive right to sell premium solids control equipment
and screens in Europe
* Logistics infrastructure in place to satisfy the most demanding customer
* Pyramid Plus screen technology gives up to 200 percent more screen area

03 May 2010 - STEP Offshore (Oslo, Norway), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aker
Solutions, and Derrick Equipment Company, a division of Derrick Corporation
(Buffalo, NY, USA), today announced an exclusive distribution agreement,
effective immediately, that gives STEP Offshore exclusive rights to sell
Derrick's premium solids control equipment and related products in Europe.

The agreement is valid for capital equipment, such as shale shakers, mud
cleaners, centrifuges, degassers, flow dividers, and for operational equipment
such as shale shaker screens and spare parts. This enables STEP Offshore to
offer an even greater range of drilling fluid management solutions.

Derrick's screen technology, also available for competitors shale shakers,
includes the Pyramid(TM) and Pyramid Plus(TM) design. These three-dimensional
screens offer the benefits of traditional flat, multi-layered screens while
adding a substantial increase in usable screen area. The result is a screen that
allows for an increase in fluid handling capacity. Pyramid(TM) screens allow
rigs to screen finer earlier in the drilling process, thus significantly
reducing total drilling fluid and disposal costs.

STEP Offshore will utilize Aker Solutions' global logistics hubs to keep
inventory of consumables close to where it is needed.

"I am very excited to secure this agreement with the premier solids control
player in the world," says Pål Eriksen, President of STEP Offshore AS. "With our
presence in the market, and with the logistics support from Aker Solutions, we
are well set up to serve our customers."

"We are delighted to have found an ideal partner in STEP Offshore and we look
forward to seeing the results of working with such an eager and technically
capable organization," says Mitch Derrick, President of Derrick Equipment

As part of the agreement, STEP Offshore has purchased the existing assets from
Derrick Equipment GmbH in Germany, and will continue operating out of the same
facilities, with the same staff, as STEP Offshore.
