Aberdeen-based international oilfield services company Expro has landed a contract worth more than £3.7million with Hess Australia.
The deal involves an appraisal drilling campaign off the north-west shelf of Western Australia starting in the last quarter of this year.
The Jack Bates semi-submersible drilling rig will be used for the campaign through to mid-2012.
The project will involve the deployment of Expro’s well testing, subsea, slickline, fluids and sampling and wet gas meter capabilities.
Ed Anderson, Expro’s Asia region director, said: “At Expro, we offer integrated solutions to help our customers achieve their goals throughout the full life cycle of a well, from exploration and appraisal through to abandonment.
“Hess is a new client for us in Australia. Our technical competence, quality control and maintenance systems as well as our personnel and management were just a few of the many areas examined by the company during audits at our Canning Vale and Darwin facilities.
“We were able to demonstrate to Hess our outstanding record and commitment to excellence in operations and are delighted to have been rewarded for these efforts.”
