Expro Achieves Safety, Quality Milestone in Kazakhstan

Leading international oilfield service company Expro has achieved 1,000 days and 700,000 exposure hours without a lost time incident or major service quality incident across its bases in Kazakhstan.

This is an outstanding achievement considering the difficult working conditions in the country. Employees deal with extreme temperatures ranging from 40 to minus 35 degrees C, often working in remote locations situated thousands of miles from the closest support base. The facility prides itself on its utilisation of equipment and personnel who, by the nature of operations in the region, must work in challenging conditions with high pressure/high H2S content wells.

This achievement represents another significant landmark in the company's Excellence in Operations program and endorses its commitment to ensuring the highest level of safety, service quality and customer care in the workplace, with the clear aim of being recognised as the industry leader in delivering excellence.

Abdallah Awara, director of Expro's Europe / Former Soviet Union region, said, "Achieving such performances is the result of relentless efforts by the entire team, including area management, operations and the HSEQ department in particular.

"They implement effective structures and systems that are compatible with the specific operating environment, while delivering thousands of hours of professional HSE and local regulatory training to all personnel, as well as promoting a team-oriented, challenging, but at the same rewarding, working culture.

"The Expro Kazakhstan team has come a long way since first operations in 1994. The quality and professionalism of its members is now the first thing any customer undoubtedly recognizes when calling on Expro services."
