USA: Expro Showcases its Latest Technology at ATCE 2011

Leading international oilfield service company Expro is showcasing its latest technologies to provide the complete package of solutions across the entire well lifecycle at the SPE ATCE2011, October 30 to November 2, Denver, Colorado (booth #2146) – bringing together their state-of-the-art innovations to benefit their customers.

Pushing the boundaries in deepwater developments

Expro’s market-leading deepwater technologies highlight the company’s commitment to innovation in accessing reserves previously regarded as beyond limits. These include Expro’s subsea safety systems, products in the company’s Connectors and Measurements marketing stream and its innovative AX-S subsea intervention system.

AX-S enhances hydrocarbon production through the well life cycle by providing cost-effective, riser-less intervention to deepwater wells in up to 10,000ft of water. The system is part of Expro’s vision to deliver a full range of wireline intervention services in deepwater wells at less than a third of the cost of deploying a rig, and to provide an effective life of field solution. With approximately 5,000 subsea wells globally, and a further 500 subsea wells a year coming onstream, Expro has identified a significant and growing market for the AX-S system. A model of AX-S is on the company’s booth.

Exploration and appraisal well testing

One of the largest well testing companies in the world, Expro offers a full range of solutions across the exploration and appraisal of a well. Its enhanced drill stem testing (DST) capability provides customers with the complete package of technology and specialist data services from reservoir to disposal, including tubing conveyed perforating, data acquisition, surface read-out through cableless telemetry, fluids sampling and analysis, compact well testing solutions and enhanced flow measurement.

Expro’s meters offer round the clock well head surveillance using the company’s non-intrusive clamp on sonar-based metering technology (ActiveSONAR and PassiveSONAR). An ActiveSONAR demo meter is on show, offering real-time information and enabling visitors to see the meter in action.

Wireline intervention

A range of Expro’s cameras, calipers and logging tools is on display, demonstrating Expro’s global wireline intervention capabilities and its ability to offer the complete package, including BOP and riser inspection services.

Expro’s chief executive officer Charles Woodburn said: “The theme of this year’s ATCE is new perspectives and the range of products we are showing enforces our commitment to that idea.

“Expro is a world-class company with a quality brand, employing some of the industry’s brightest people. We are committed to delivering world-class service, products and expertise which assist our customers from Exploration & Appraisal through to Abandonment. Our display at this year’s ATCE will go some way towards demonstrating that we continue to take significant strides in developing and offering the solutions our industry needs through the coming decade and beyond.”
