Energy services provider, Expro Group Holdings N.V., has announced a five-year well intervention and integrity contract with TotalEnergies EP Uganda for the multi-well Tilenga project.
Work begins in Q2 2023, with Expro initially supporting drilling activity, followed by production optimization, integrity and well workover support. Expro has designed four well intervention units to deliver a single operational solution for slickline and braided line in a cased hole environment across the life of the well. The solution is designed to reduce equipment footprint and equivalent CO² emissions, while delivering improved efficiency.
The Tilenga project covers six fields, with over 400 wells planned across multiple pads. Drilling will start this year and continue for five years.
A key component in Expro securing a contract worth over $30 million for slickline services was its ability to provide an innovative environmental solution in support of the client’s carbon reduction objectives, as well as Expro’s commitment to national recruitment in line with a local development plan, working in collaboration with TotalEnergies and the Petroleum Authority of Uganda (PAU).
Expro’s solution placed significant focus on the location’s sensitivity near a national park. The company is providing environmentally sympathetic lower carbon operations solutions compared to current market alternatives. Expro has also invested in a new operational facility in-country, supported by investment in people and training to help exceed local expectations.
