Over three years, the contracts will see Expro work across Tullow Oil’s assets in the West African country, including the Jubilee field and the Tweneboa-Enyenra-Ntomme (TEN) field project.

Following on from Expro’s Phase 1 contract for Jubilee field, involving more than 10 completions, the company has been awarded continued services for Phase 1a. This covers completions on new wells for Jubilee, as well as interventions and remedial work. The TEN project will also see Expro provide subsea completion work in all planned wells.

Expro sub-Saharan Africa region director Riccardo Muttoni said, “These contracts build on investments Expro has made over the past five years including the establishment of our world-class operating facility in Takoradi. We are proud that 70 per cent of our workforce in-country, including 20 graduate engineers, is Ghanaian, which we are looking to increase to 85 per cent by 2017.”

A number of Expro’s product lines and services will be utilised, including large bore subsea completion landing strings, subsea exploration and appraisal landing strings, high flow rate surface well testing and sampling services.

The oilfield services company has invested over US$32mn in Ghana since entering the market in 2008 to support key clients such as Tullow Oil.

Charles Darku, Tullow Oil Ghana’s general manager, added that the company looks forward to utilising Expro’s expertise in the offshore environment to deliver their key projects in Ghana.
