Expro, an international oilfield services company, reported Tuesday that it has secured awarded a $30 million contract with the Hindustan Oil Exploration Co. (HOEC) for a Modular Gas Processing Plant (MGPP) for the Dirok gas field in the Assam-Arakan Basin, India.
Under the contract, Expro will provide the design, engineering, construction, transportation, installation and commissioning of the MGPP. The facility, designed to process up to 35 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) of gas with assoicated liquid condensates, will fulfil the requirement of a fast-track Early Production System (EPS) as well as long-term operational goals.
"This project is a significant milestone for Expro as it marks our first ever contract in India for the provision of a fast-track modular gas processing plant on a lease, operate and maintain basis ... I'm delighted that HOEC have chosen to partner with Expro and are confident in our production solutions and technical expertise. The plant itself will be fully operated and maintained by local Expro personnel," Keith Palmer, president for Expro Production and Asia said in the press release.
Expro will also supply personnel to operate and maintain the MGPP to assist HOEC in maximizing gas and condensate production from the field over the long-term.
"HOEC is pleased to select Expro as its partner for this project ... Once the plant is commissioned, it will be the first such plant in India specifically suited to the eco-sensitive and logistically challenging north eastern region," P.R Krishna, HOEC asset manager commented.
