International oilfield services company Expro has secured a contract extension to supply well test and subsea services for INPEX-operated, Ichthys LNG.

The contract will see Expro continue to supply a high rate 175 MMscf/day well testing package, which will include enhanced electronic emergency shut down (ESD) systems.

Expro will also supply 7 3/8-inch high debris valves, developed as part of the Next Generation Landing String (NGLS) program, designed and tested to the industry’s new API 17G standard.

Expro meets its clients’ needs through compliance to industry standards, ability to offer high temperature and advanced cutting capabilities, alongside ensuring integrity.

Mrinal Vohra, Expro’s Region Vice President of Asia Pacific, says, “Since 2014, Expro has delivered a solid track record on the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG, completing 18 wells to date. This contract extension allows us to continue to flow back the wells at maximum rates using our market leading technology, as well as delivering high levels of safety and service delivery for this high-profile project.”

“We are delighted to continue working with INPEX in the delivery of this highly technical and complex, major subsea development project,” Vohra continues.

Work on the next phase of field development is due to commence March 2020.
