The AX-S tool storage package deployed for subsea stack-up commissioning

International oilfield services company Expro is celebrating the commissioning of its ground-breaking AX-S well intervention system.

 

The AX-S system, on board the Havila Phoenix vessel, completed its final commissioning successfully on a subsea well in a fjord (Onarheimsfjorden), in Norway, in April. Many major milestones were achieved and preparations are now under way for its first commercial well intervention job in the North Sea.


All operations during the commissioning were carried out safely without any incidents. All the subsea packages were fully deployed twice in a complete stack-up and 34 tools runs were performed on the well deploying a variety of down hole equipment including callipers, production logging, CCL, gamma ray, deep set plug, crown plugs and wireline tractor.


More than 40 potential customers attended the commissioning and witnessed the successful demonstrations. Dave Shand, AX-S Managing Director, said: “After more than seven years of development and innovation and $200million investment in technology, it is testament to the hard work of our AX-S team and the backing of Expro that the AX-S system is now ready for business.


 “The final commissioning of this innovative well intervention system is an epic milestone and we are delighted that we have delivered a leading edge solution to the oil and gas industry which will significantly change how operators approach well intervention globally.
“The feedback we have received from this major milestone shows that AX-S has been recognised as a novel, safe, cost efficient and efficient way of performing well intervention.”
With its industry experience and innovative technology, Expro offers tailor-made solutions for its customers across the lifecycle of their wells.
