Expro Wins Well Test Contract in Algeria

Expro has been awarded a well testing contract in the South West of Algeria. The contract will see Expro provide specialist well testing services and equipment on up to nine wells, commencing in September 2010.

Expro's mobile process equipment measures the performance of a well with acute accuracy. The procedure involves flowing the well through a temporary completion and production system in order to measure pressure and flow rates, and to gather representative fluid samples. These measurements are used to determine commercial viability, as well as to plan potential completion and production facilities.

Nigel Meany, director of Expro's Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, said, "This is a fantastic win for the Expro MENA team, with our work in Algeria becoming a significant part of our business. Well testing has been a strong sector of Expro's offering for over 35 years and the knowledge and experience of the collective team ensures we always deliver above and beyond for our customers. This is a deserved win."
