Leading international oilfield services company, Expro, has been awarded a multimillion dollar contract for Hindustan Oil Exploration Co. Ltd. (HOEC) in Mumbai, India on June 3.
The seven-year contract will include the build, maintenance and operation of a production handling facility on a Mobile Offshore Production Unit (MOPU) as well as all topside processing equipment.
The bespoke build will be fast tracked with a scheduled delivery of eight months. The MOPU will produce oil and gas from the B-80 field located offshore India.
“The award of this contract, coupled with our strong track record of operational performance and delivery to date, further enhances our long-standing relationship with HOEC and we look forward to maintaining these high standards as we move into our new contract with them,” Mrinal Vohra, Expro’s region vice president of Asia Pacific, said.
Expro is the market-leading provider of production, well testing and appraisal services globally. Headquartered in the UK, the company’s global well test operations are run from Great Yarmouth and Aberdeen (UK), alongside regional hubs in North and Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.
