Expro sees ME business growth
Dubai, January 15, 2013
International oilfield services company Expro said 2012 was a highly successful year for its well flow management activities in the Middle East and anticipated further strong growth this year.
Expro said it is experiencing significant demand for a range of its services in the region, particularly its Drill Stem Testing (DST) and Meters offerings, and has a healthy order book for next year.
It also anticipates enhanced activity for its Early Production Facilities (EPF) business in the year ahead, said a statement from the company.
Expro introduced its DST capabilities into the Middle East in 2012 and secured six contracts for production testing in Egypt, with further activity in Iraq.
Iraq has also proved to be a successful market for its Meters services and the company will look to expand this section of the business into Libya, Algeria and Saudi Arabia in 2013.
To ensure a high quality of service, Expro has also continued to invest significantly in its core well testing business in line with increased opportunities as well as expand its wireline intervention capabilities.
Hussein Elsisi, the business development manager for Mena said, "We are seeing a healthy growth in our DST activity in the Middle East as more and more companies recognise the benefits of working with a company that offers the complete well test package with some of the industry’s most reliable technologies, including our multi-function and single cycle cased hole tools for well testing."
"Our meters business offers on-demand, cost-effective, non-intrusive flow meters and measurement services for individual well, flowline and overall field production surveillance," he stated.
"These solutions enable customers to realise increased value from their wells and fields through improved production monitoring, optimisation of well performance, increased efficiency and reduced metering costs – all with reduced health, safety and environmental exposure," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
