Oil and gas company Equinor has awarded a contract to US-based Expro to offer well testing services on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
As per the corporate frame agreement, Expro will undertake the well testing work across the Barents, Norwegian and North seas.
The scope of the four-year contract includes production optimisation and well flow management.
Expro said these services will improve Equinor’s assets in production, abandonment, completion and intervention activities.
The energy services provider’s CoilHose light well circulation system (LWCS) will be used to perform hydraulic intervention well work as part of the work scope.
The contract includes three two-year options and builds on the earlier seven-year agreement with Equinor.
A clear commitment to a low-carbon plan is a prerequisite for a large amount of the contract, Expro noted.
The value of the new contract was not disclosed.
Expro Europe and sub-Saharan Africa regional vice-president Iain Farley said: “The contract award is an excellent example of how we continue to build on our collaborative engagement with Equinor.
“The ongoing seven-year contract has allowed us to work together to drive value through production optimisation that encapsulates our ability to reduce our carbon footprint at all stages of project delivery.
“We take pride in employing a local workforce in Expro Norway AS and will continue to invest in our people, bringing new talent to our operational team, to continue to deliver the performance this important client expects of Expro.”
In June 2023, French energy major TotalEnergies awarded a $30m (€27.48m) well intervention and integrity contract to Expro for the Tilenga project in Uganda.
Before that Harbour Energy selected Expro for a decommissioning project on the UK Continental Shelf.
The multi-year contract from Harbour Energy was valued at $20m (£15.98m).
