Expro showcases deepwater, exploration and wireline technologies at OTC
Leading international oilfield service company Expro will highlight some of its latest technologies and demonstrate its ability to offer the complete package of solutions across the well lifecycle at this year’s Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston.
Expro’s chief executive officer Charles Woodburn said: “Our presence at this year’s OTC will demonstrate our continued investment in developing the technologies to meet both customer and industry needs. With a firm focus on safety and quality, we continue to enhance our portfolio to position Expro as a global provider of solutions from exploration and appraisal through to abandonment.”
Expro’s range of landing string assemblies and subsea control systems are specifically designed to minimise risk in subsea completion and intervention operations and achieve secure well status in the event of an emergency. The latest landing string technology development to be offered by Expro – the ELSA-EA Express system – incorporates a number of enhanced safety and efficiency features, further building on Expro’s market-leading position in subsea safety systems.
Expro subsea experts will be on hand to discuss this development, while the company’s industry-first 15,000psi deepwater electro-hydraulic subsea landing string controls will be on show. This deepwater control system was deployed in the Gulf of Mexico, where Expro successfully installed and commissioned multiple deepwater wells on the flagship Tahiti and Blind Faith projects.
A model and 3D animation of Expro’s AX-S deepwater intervention system will also be on display for discussion with booth visitors. AX-S brings safer, deeper, faster and cheaper intervention to wells in up to 10,000ft. Its aim is to deliver a full range of wireline intervention services in deepwater wells at substantially less than the cost of using a rig.
Also on display will be latest developments in Expro’s market-leading Tronic subsea connection system range, all designed to provide reliability and efficiency in subsea environments.
