Expro Wins Wireline Contract in Brazil
Leading international oilfield service company Expro announced today its Latin America team has been awarded a new multi-million dollar wireline contract with Petrobras in Brazil.
As part of the four-year contract, Expro will provide 20 packages of slickline equipment and personnel to operate them. The initial contract term has the potential to significantly increase the number of slickline packages provided. There are options to allow up to four years of contract extensions.
This award will make Expro the largest slickline provider in Brazil.
This contract enhances the specialist well testing, subsea and Drill Stem Testing services the company already delivers to Petrobras and will give a platform for subsequent wireline intervention growth in the region, including the opportunity to introduce cased hole products to Petrobras and elsewhere in the country.
Sergio Zubelli, Expro’s Latin America region director, said: “This contract has elevated Expro’s status and we will be the biggest slickline provider in Brazil. This achievement is due to the hard work of our local teams and the support from Expro’s global wireline intervention product line team. This contract will also allow us further opportunities for our complete portfolio of intervention tools.”
Mark Illingworth, Expro’s wireline intervention director, said: “An award of this magnitude further cements Expro’s reputation as a global market leader in wireline intervention. We are an established provider of wireline services with over 40 years’ experience working for some of the biggest operators in the world.
“These types of awards are only gained through a clear focus on the product line, a clear understanding of what our customer wants, and by utilising the vast experience our people have in wireline intervention operations. We look forward to delivering for Petrobras through this project and beyond.”
