Energy services provider Expro has completed a five-well subsea batch campaign in Australia, marking the company’s 100th job using the SeaCure cementing technology.

The SeaCure technology maintained the quality of primary cementation for the conductors while mitigating risks associated with cement slurry placement, Expro said. 

Expro achieved this using the proprietary stabbed-in inner string technique. By using the SeaCure system and implementing post-cementing circulation via the inner annulus until slurry curing was complete, Expro said it minimized risks and ensured reliable installation of the top holes.

SeaCure was initially developed by DeltaTek which Expro acquired in February 2023 to expand its offerings, capabilities, and technology portfolio in the well construction cementing sector. Additionally, this acquisition aimed to accelerate DeltaTek’s international deployment ambitions leveraging Expro’s global footprint.

“Reaching our 100th global SeaCure job is a testament to the dedication and expertise of our team, as well as the strength of our technology and solutions. We are proud of providing the platform for Tristam Horn and the legacy DeltaTek to expedite their growth journey and quest for providing innovative solutions to our clients,” said Alistair Geddes, Expro’s Chief Operating Officer.

“Ineffective cementation is one of the single biggest contributors to cost over-runs, poor life of well integrity and ultimate failure of well objectives. Expro’s robust Cure portfolio has been developed to solve many of the issues associated with cementing subsea wells with the aim of delivering first time ultimate cement placement. SeaCure is an example of Expro’s commitment to investing in innovation, developing new technologies and delivering value and excellence to our clients globally.”

Expro recently also acquired the Scotland-based Coretrax, a provider of performance drilling tools and wellbore cleanup, well integrity, and production optimization solutions.

This acquisition is expected to enable Expro to expand its portfolio of technology-enabled well construction and well intervention and integrity solutions.
