OE 2015: Expro strengthens North Sea operations with $25M contract wins

ABERDEEN – Expro received a subsea contract from oil and gas producer, Wintershall Norway, in the Haltenbanken area of the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). The five-year contract, for Wintershall’s Maria project, includes multi-well completions with two optional two-year extensions.

The scope of the contract includes the supply of a complete workover riser system including surface test tree and subsea landing string systems. Operations, maintenance and engineering support services will also be provided for the system including global riser analysis and life cycle fatigue monitoring.

In the UK Central North Sea, the company has won a contract with Premier Oil plc for its Catcher development to provide surface well testing and fluid analysis services on 22 subsea wells for three years, with options for three one-year extensions.

Expro’s work in Norway will be supported by a major new base in Tananger set to officially open later this year. The facility will house several of the company’s lines including Drill Stem Testing and Well Testing, and will compromise an office building, yard and workshop with the capability to rig-up four well test packages, and service a further six, simultaneously.
