Expro secures US$20mn subsea contract offshore Mauritania

Expros IRS 2Expro has secured a contract from Pacific Drilling LLC’s subsidiary, Pacific Santa Ana, for the provision of an Intervention Riser System (IRS) for PETRONAS’s Chinguetti Field Phase II plug and abandonment (P&A) contract, offshore Mauritania

The contract, valued at US$20mn, will see oilfield services company Expro provide its IRS system with associated surface support equipment to be deployed from Pacific Drilling’s drillship, Pacific Santa Ana. The contracted work will take place for an estimated 360 days.

Worldwide Oilfield Machine (WOM) will support the company with the provision of the subsea well access system and technical support team.

The award includes supplying a range of services, including the subsea well access system, lubricator valve, surface flowhead, umbilicals, topsides control equipment and IWOCS (installation and workover control system) package.

Expro will also provide an onshore project management team to support Pacific Drilling throughout the project planning and execution phases, based at Expro’s office in Kuala Lumpur and then locally onshore in Mauritania.

Colin Mackenzie, subsea vice-president at Expro, said, “This contract allows us to continue to expand our service offering to clients, and provide well access through our existing landing string technology, or now through-riser or riserless systems.

“We welcome the opportunity to support Pacific Drilling by providing our technology and services, which will enhance the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the field P&A process from their high specification drillship.”
