The deal comes as operators shift from the traditional onshore treatment of drilling waste fluids towards offshore treatment in order to shield the environment and reduce cost.
"I am very satisfied with this contract to support IKM's push into this market segment," said Nature Oil and Gas Chief Executive Officer, Stig Feyling.
"The paradigm for waste treatment in the oil and gas industry is changing rapidly and a player like IKM choosing Nature proves that we are offering the dominant technology in the market."
Shares rose 6.93% to 27.00p at 10:33 Monday.
