Expro Wins Contract for BP's North Sea Quad Project

Oilfield services firm Expro reported Tuesday that it has secured a major subsea contract with BP for the Quad 204 project in the UK North Sea.

The Quad 204 project involves the construction of a new floating production, storage and offloading unit west of the Shetland Isles to replace the existing Schiehallion installation.

Expro said the seven-year, multi-million dollar contract will see the firm provide its latest design vertical Xmas tree landing string for the installation of BP's subsea completions. The ELSA-DB is billed as a "unique landing string system" that enables well clean-up and completion from a MODU (mobile-operated drilling unit) proper to the installation of the vertical production tree.

Keith Palmer, region director for Europe CIS at Expro, commented in a company statement:

"Expro have been the provider of subsea equipment and services to BP's operations in the North Sea since the late 1990s, working across a range of challenging subsea environments, and this new contract further strengthens our working relationship.

"This long-term contract allows Expro to further develop our technology in the UK North Sea, increase our local workforce and continue to provide a high-quality service to BP. This project will also see Expro apply its newest vertical subsea technologies in the North Sea for the first time."
