Expro's Latest Technology on Show at Offshore Europe

05 September 2011

Leading international oilfield service company Expro will be showcasing a range of its latest technologies, which enable it to offer the complete package of solutions across the entire well lifecycle, at the Offshore Europe conference and exhibition in Aberdeen, September 6 - 8.

Deepwater developments

Expro is investing in new technology to meet customer demand for deepwater reserves.

A range of Expro’s market-leading deepwater technologies will be on show at the event to highlight the company’s commitment to innovation in accessing reserves previously regarded as beyond limits. These technologies include Expro’s subsea safety systems, products in the company’s Connectors and Measurements marketing stream and the groundbreaking AX-S subsea intervention system.

AX-S enhances hydrocarbon production through the well life cycle by providing cost-effective, riser-less intervention to deepwater wells in up to 10,000ft of water. The innovative system is part of Expro’s vision to deliver a full range of wireline intervention services in deepwater wells at less than a third of the cost of deploying a rig. A model of the AX-S system will be available on the company’s stand 2C130.

Expro will be holding a press conference to explore the benefits of the AX-S system and discuss its commercial launch on Wednesday September 7, at 12.15pm, in the Press Room (room 18 / 20) at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC).

Expro’s range of landing string assemblies and subsea control systems minimise risk in subsea completion and intervention operations and achieve secure well status in the event of an emergency.

Also on display will be the latest developments in Expro’s leading Tronic subsea connection system range, all of which are designed to provide reliability and efficiency in deepwater environments.

Expro Connectors & Measurements are launching their enhanced, next generation of DigiTRON connectors and will be introducing DigiTRON+ and DigiTRONe at the show. DigiTRON+ and DigiTRONe are recognised as the most technically advanced and reliable subsea connectors on the market. They are backward compatible and have undergone refined enhancements to ensure they are leaders in market.

Exploration and appraisal well testing

One of the largest well testing companies in the world, Expro offers a full range of solutions across the exploration and appraisal of a well. Its enhanced drill stem testing (DST) capability provides customers with the complete package of technology and specialist data services from reservoir to disposal, including tubing conveyed perforating, data acquisition, surface read-out through cableless telemetry, fluids sampling and analysis, compact well testing solutions and enhanced flow measurement. A well testing model will be on display on the Expro stand.

Expro’s meters offer round the clock well head surveillance using the company’s non-intrusive clamp on sonar-based metering technology (ActiveSONAR and PassiveSONAR). An ActiveSONAR demo meter will be on show on the Expro stand, offering real-time information, enabling visitors to see the meter in action.

Wireline intervention

A range of Expro’s cameras, calipers and logging tools will also be on display, demonstrating Expro’s global wireline intervention capabilities and its ability to offer the complete package, including BOP and riser inspection services.

Expro’s chief executive officer Charles Woodburn said: "We have a strong affinity with Aberdeen which is why we always particularly look forward to Offshore Europe - and this year is no different.

"Offshore Europe will be especially significant for Expro as we will officially launch the AX-S system. The time and dedication we have invested in delivering such a game changing system as AX-S demonstrates our continued commitment to developing technologies for not only our customers’ needs but the industry’s too.

"Offshore Europe also enables us to highlight many of our other technologies which, in their own way, are providing cost-effective solutions to our clients and empowering them to achieve more.”
