Oilfield services company Expro has been awarded a two-year contract to provide well testing services for Ineos on the Breagh field offshore the UK.
Expro said on Tuesday that the company would provide testing services for at least three wells, including two new drills and one re-entry at the Breagh Alpha platform as part of the Southern North Sea (SNS) development program.
The company added that the contract included an extension option for further two wells.
The Breagh Alpha Platform is located on the Breagh field, the first field development project under Ineos operatorship in the UK, in the British part of the North Sea, 65 kilometres off the northeast coast of England.
The operator, Ineos Breagh, holds 70 percent interest while the sole partner at the field is Oranje-Nassau Energie (ONE).
Neil Sims, VP for Europe CIS region, said: “We are excited to be working with a new operator like Ineos Breagh and this contract signifies the commitment both companies have to the SNS area. The possibility of a further three wells shows the potential still remaining in the region.
“As Expro provided testing services for other wells in the Breagh Alpha complex, we were uniquely positioned to offer specialist knowledge and insight to INEOS Breagh.”
Mervyn Williams, supply chain manager at Ineos Breagh, added: “We saw in Expro a keen value proposition and a highly professional team that we are convinced will add genuine value to our Breagh Alpha drilling program.”
