Expro Reels in Contract for Ghana's First Deepwater Development

International oilfield service company Expro is establishing a new base in Ghana following the award of a multi-million dollar contract to deliver subsea, well test and data acquisition services for Tullow on the Jubilee Phase 1 Development field, which is the country's first deepwater development.

Ghana has been a strategic target for Expro since Tullow announced its intention to explore and later develop a major discovery. Expro is the current incumbent for Tullow's exploration and testing work. On the back of this success, Expro has been awarded the Jubilee Phase 1 subsea and intervention work for 30 months.

Expro will deliver a subsea deepwater intervention completion landing string, using electro-hydraulic technology, which will operate from a fifth-generation dynamic positioning rig. The company, which specializes in all aspects of well flow management, has also been awarded the data acquisition and surface well test clean-up work for Tullow.

Robin Mair, Expro's Operations Director, said, "We are delighted to have been awarded this contract with Tullow Oil which further enhances our relationship with this important customer through the sharing of knowledge and the introduction of some of Expro's innovative technology.

"This is a technically complex project that will utilize Expro's market-leading deepwater well completion technology which has a proven track record for safe and reliable operating performance in some of the most challenging environments across the world.

"This contract is a result of our ability to deliver challenging subsea projects safely, on time and budget and to the highest standards. Our expertise as solution providers and our commitment to operational excellence will ensure we work with Tullow to deliver exactly what is required on this landmark development."
