Expro awarded $30m production contract in IndiaInternational oilfield services company, Expro, has been awarded a contract worth over $30m with the Hindustan Oil Exploration Company (HOEC) for the Dirok gas field in India.
The project will see Expro provide the design, engineering, construction, transportation, installation and commissioning of a Modular Gas Processing Plant (MGPP) which will fulfil the requirement of a fast-track Early Production System (EPS) as well as long-term operational goals. The facility is designed to process up to 35 mmscf gas per day with associated liquid condensates.
Keith Palmer, President for Expro Production and Asia commented: “This project is a significant milestone for Expro as it marks our first ever contract in India for the provision of a fast-track modular gas processing plant on a lease, operate and maintain basis.
“I’m delighted that HOEC have chosen to partner with Expro and are confident in our production solutions and technical expertise. The plant itself will be fully operated and maintained by local Expro personnel.”
Expro will also supply personnel to operate and maintain the MGPP to assist HOEC in maximising gas and condensate production from the field over the long-term.
P.R Krishna, HOEC Asset Manager said: “HOEC is pleased to select Expro as its partner for this project.
“Expro was selected in an international competitive bidding process based on their superior technical knowledge and experience in the design and operation of modular gas processing plants. Once the plant is commissioned, it will be the first such plant in India specifically suited to the eco-sensitive and logistically challenging north eastern region.”
The Dirok field, located in the Assam-Arakan basin, covers a development area of 110sq km in north-eastern India close to the town of Digboi.
