Leading international oilfield services company, Expro, has secured a milestone subsea contract with BP for the Shah Deniz Stage 2 project in the South Caspian Sea, one of the company’s largest Europe CIS contracts to date. 

The five-year contract, worth almost US$100m, will see Expro provide completion landing string equipment and services for the installation and completion of Shah Deniz Stage 2 subsea wells, covering 24 new subsea completions.

As a result of the contract, Expro is set to invest in its subsea onshore support base and infrastructure to support BP locally in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Expro will supply its Landing String Assembly – High Pressure (ESLA-HP) 15k valves in conjunction with its EXPRESS electro hydraulic control systems, thus ensuring a fast Emergency Shut Down during the clean-up of high pressure/high rate gas wells. 

The ELSA-HP has been developed to service the high-pressure horizontal tree completion and intervention market. With systems designed and qualified up to 15,000psi, 250 degF and 10,000ft water depth, this landing string assembly provides clients with the safety and reliability to develop fields with challenging conditions.
