Expro Contract, Ghana’s First Deepwater Field

Saturday, July 25, 2009

International oilfield service company Expro is establishing a new base in Ghana following the award of a multi-million dollar contract to deliver subsea, well test and data acquisition services for Tullow Ghana Limited (subsidiary of ‘Tullow Oil’) on the Jubilee Phase 1 Development field, which is the country’s first deepwater development. 

Ghana has been a strategic target for Expro since Tullow announced its intention to explore and later develop a major discovery.  Expro is the current incumbent for Tullow’s exploration and testing work. On the back of this success, Expro has been awarded the Jubilee Phase 1 subsea and intervention work for 30 months.

Expro will deliver a subsea deepwater intervention completion landing string, using electro-hydraulic technology, which will operate from a fifth-generation dynamic positioning rig.  The company, which specialises in all aspects of well flow management, has also been awarded the data acquisition and surface well test clean-up work for Tullow.
