Expro wins NW Shelf well test assignment

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – Hess Australia has awarded Expro a $6 million-plus contract for an offshore appraisal drilling campaign on Australia’s North West Shelf.

The semisubmersible Jack Bates drilling rig will perform this program, from 4Q 2011 through mid-2012.

Expro will deploy its well testing, subsea, slickline, fluids and sampling and wet gas meter capabilities. Expro’s well test technique involves flowing the well through a temporary completion and production system to measure flow parameters and to gather representative fluid samples for analysis.

These measurements serve to determine commercial viability, and assist planning of potential future completion and production facilities.
