UK-based oilfield services company Expro has secured a $10-million well services contract extension with Apache North Sea.
The contract covers a range of well services including slickline, cased hole services and pumping services, as well as support in delivering coiled tubing services. This utilises a crew covering the UK North Sea Forties platforms.
Expro has worked with Apache since 2004 and after securing the initial well services contract in 2009, has now been awarded two further one-year extensions (to 2019).
Gary Sims, UK Area Manager, said: “As one of the world’s largest well intervention companies, we remain committed to maintaining our strong working relationship with Apache.
“Our 40 years of experience mean that we are ideally placed to support this comprehensive range of intervention related services, providing a safe and cost-effective approach to maximise incremental production from mature assets.
“Expro can also provide additional cased hole services on demand, avoiding costly downtime, ensuring our customers receive the fast response times they need in an increasingly cost sensitive market place.”
