Oilfield services specialist Expro has completed a plug and abandonment (P&A) project in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) for Apache.
The Apache project involved the pre-abandonment and plugging of wells in the ultra-deepwater Atwater Valley and Mississippi Canyon areas.
Beginning in March, Expro utilised 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’s P&A offering is being launched at OTC this week where there is a full schedule of technical presentations focusing on reservoir evaluation, subsea development, production optimisation and P&A on booth 3993 daily.
