Expro announces USD 15M contract

Energy services provider Expro (XPRO) has secured a contract with a major operator for the first deployment of its unique and industry-leading single shear and seal high-debris 15K ball valve assembly.

The multi-functional single shear and seal mechanism will form part of a full subsea deepwater completion/intervention system being designed by Expro for a long-standing and valued customer for a deepwater subsea field at about 6,600ft (2,000 m) in the Gulf of Mexico.

The mechanism is designed to answer the customer’s requirement for a versatile, single-valve subsea solution rather than the conventional double-valve system while offering the reassurance of risk reduction through an additional safety barrier.

The three-year contract for the in-riser system, valued at over USD 15M, reinforces Expro’s stature as the leading provider of rental and customized subsea well access solutions, offering primary well control and disconnect options during well testing, completion, or intervention subsea operations.

Expro’s high-debris single ball system, which delivers shear and post shear seal on a multitude of sizes of coiled tubing, slickline, and electrical cable, is a solution for both gas and liquid. Its versatility makes it suitable for deployment in both in-riser or open water environments.

It is NACE MR0175 compliant and qualified for sour hydrogen sulfide environments. Bi-directional sealing is available even after a pump-through. The mechanism has been qualified to API 17G standard for the performance and design of subsea well intervention equipment. Its ability to handle up to 15% debris is a significant improvement over alternative mechanisms used in this environment today.
