Expro wins Iraq oil well testing contract
Baghdad, May 27, 2014
Leading international oil field services company, Expro, has clinched a multi-year contract with a leading international oil company for multiphase production testing in Iraq.
As per the contract, Expro will provide non-intrusive multiphase production testing of oil wells in this on shore field, said a senior official.
"This contract award highlights an innovative element of the broad product and service portfolio we offer throughout the region and across the lifecycle of the well,” remarked Selim Djandji, the region director for Mena.
"Expro is committed to the local communities where we work, including recruitment and training of indigenous work-force - delivering new technology to the Iraq oil and gas industry," he added.
Expro said it will be utilising its Sonar metering technology to measure production from the wells. SonarTest leverages Expro’s clamp-on Sonar technology, which enables non-intrusive well production surveillance.
It is well suited for high-frequency testing in challenging environments and importantly, significantly reduces potential environmental and safety risks.
Patrick Curry, the general manager at Expro Meters, said: "Our small footprint, non-intrusive Sonar technology enables high-frequency, safe, flareless production testing, which is important to the redevelopment of these fields."
Expro's Sonar meters are manufactured in Wallingford, Connecticut and are deployed by Expro crews based in the respective local markets.
Expro began production testing operations in Middle East in 2012. Since then, the company has tested over 500 wells in Iraq and over 1,000 wells worldwide with SonarTest.-TradeArabia News Service
