Expro secures major subsea contract west of the Shetland Isles

The 7-year multi-million dollar contract will see Expro provide its latest design vertical xmas tree landing string for the installation of BP’s subsea completions. Expro’s unique design of ELSA-DB (Dual Bore) subsea test tree systems will be interfaced with BP’s subsea production system’s contractor, completion provider and deepwater drilling rig.

The ELSA-DB is a unique landing string system that is used in conjunction with vertical production tree systems. The innovative design landing string system enables well clean-up/completion deployment from a MODU (Mobile Operated Drilling Unit) prior to the installation of the vertical production tree.

Keith Palmer, Region Director for Europe CIS at Expro, comments:

“Expro have been the provider of subsea equipment and services to BP’s operations in the North Sea since the late 1990s, working across a range of challenging subsea environments, and this new contract further strengthens our working relationship.

“This long-term contract allows Expro to further develop our technology in the UK North Sea, increase our local workforce and continue to provide a high-quality service to BP. This project will also see Expro apply its newest vertical subsea technologies in the North Sea for the first time.”

BP’s Quad 204 project involves constructing a new Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit to replace the existing Schiehallion installation. The FPSO and its subsea structures will be installed in modules with production planned for 2016.
