Expro wraps up P&A for Apache in Gulf of Mexico

UK oilfield services company Expro has completed a plug and abandonment (P&A) project in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) for Apache.

The company said the Apache work comprised the pre-abandonment and plugging of wells in the ultra deepwater Atwater Valley and Mississippi Canyon areas.

Starting in March 2016, Expro said it used its well intervention services to provide the first phase of abandonment of the wells. This involved plugging, cutting and perforating using slickline and electric-line cased hole applications to gain access to the wells and allow circulation.

Expro has worked with Apache for over 10 years, primarily in its Europe CIS region, supplying subsea, well testing, intervention and sampling services, and well integrity software, the company said.

Mark Enget, Vice President – North America, said: “This contract builds on the long-standing relationship between Expro and Apache, and I’m delighted that we’re providing successful plug and abandonment expertise in the GoM.”

The UK-based firms said that P&A is one of the four new capabilities developed by Expro in response to current market conditions and being launched at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston from 2-5 May 2015.

During the event, the company will hold presentations on Reservoir Evaluation, Subsea Development, Production Optimisation and P&A – on booth 3993 daily.
