Expro said on Monday that the contract was awarded for work on Pacific Drilling’s Chinguetti field Phase II plug and abandonment (P&A) contract.

The contract, valued at $20 million, will see Expro provide its IRS system with associated surface support equipment which will be deployed from the Pacific Santa Ana drillship.

According to the company, the contracted work will take place for an estimated 360 days.

Worldwide Oilfield Machine (WOM) will support Expro with the provision of the subsea well access system and technical support team.

The IRS establishes and maintains well access throughout riser to surface operations, replicating the functionality of the blow-out preventer and providing means of well control, connected directly to the production tree.

With increased coiled tubing cutting and disconnect capability, the IRS system provides an alternative dual barrier, through-tubing system.

Under the scope of the deal, Expro will supply a range of services including the subsea well access system, lubricator valve, surface flow-head, umbilicals, topsides control equipment, and IWOCS (installation and workover control system) package.

Expro will also provide an onshore project management team in Kuala Lumpur and then locally onshore in Mauritania.

Colin Mackenzie, SVP at Expro, said: “This contract allows Expro to continue to expand our service offering to clients, and provide well access through our existing landing string technology, or now through-riser or riserless systems.”

As for the field, the Petronas-operated Chinguetti field is located in Deep Water Block 4 of PSC B, located 50 miles (80 km) west of the Mauritania coastline and some 56 miles (90 km) from the capital, Nouakchott.

The field has been undergoing decommissioning since February 2018 when Ocean Installer won a contract to assist BW Offshore to remove the Berge Helene FPSO working on the field.
