Oilfield services company Expro has secured a contract to provide well-testing services for petrochemicals, specialty chemicals, and oil products manufacturer Ineos.

The scope of works under the two-year contract includes testing services for two new drills and one for re-entry at the Breagh Alpha Platform as part of the Southern North Sea (SNS) Development Programme.

As part of the contract, Expro has the option to extend for a further two wells.

Expro Group Europe CIS region vice-president Neil Sims said: “We are excited to be working with a new operator like INEOS Breagh and this contract signifies the commitment both companies have to the SNS area. The possibility of a further three wells shows the potential still remaining in the region.
