Global oil services company Archer has acquired the Aberdeenshire plug and abandonment specialist Romar-Abrado for an enterprise value of $8 million.

It has a heritage that stretches back over 40 years and operates in 40 locations providing drilling services, well integrity & intervention, plug & abandonment and decommissioning to its upstream oil and gas clients.
