Expro DST and TCP excels in world’s most active E&A offshore contract
Customer challenges
  • After displacing the previous incumbent of over 20 years; to provide safe and high performing DST and TCP services to ONGC on a wide range of offshore standard and HPHT oil and gas well applications on jack-up and semi-submersible rigs and drillships off India's west and east coasts
  • Operations commenced in September 2016 on what is the world's most active E&A offshore contract, averaging 2 to 3 jobs per week, mostly on the west coast out of Mumbai, but also captures some east coast wells out of Kakinada
  • Most wells have multiple zones of interest; hence DST tools also have to be serviced/redressed at the well site. In all cases TCP gun loading and firing head assembly is done at the well location; i.e. onboard the offshore vessel
  • With heightened activity in DST and TCP and other product/service lines, Expro has since invested in a new customised base in Navi Mumbai, to maintain high quality service delivery
Expro Excellence
  • Coordinated approach to contract start up involving Expro's India operations team, DST & TCP product line, supply chain, logistics and learning and development functions
  • Unprecedented fast-track mobilisation and integration of 10 DST packages and 12 TCP packages to India for start-up operations
  • Seamless integration of service personnel through established training and competency programmes
  • Focused product line support during start-up operations and the introduction of new products and technology, and equipment configurations
  • Measurable continuous improvement through performance management and acting on lessons learned
Value to client
  • Proactive and collaborative approach to job design and planning, with value-added test string configurations, together with the adoption of best practices, have ensured that the client's well test objectives are fully achieved and/or desired well performance targets are met or exceeded on production wells
  • Dedicated operations coordinator and support team in Mumbai
  • World class HSE performance with zero LTIs (>370 DST/TCP jobs performed with >230,000 associated exposure hours; ie. safe man hours)
  • Over 73,500 operating hours below RKB with 98.98% efficiency
  • Record milestone reached with over 200 consecutive TCP jobs successfully completed with zero failures and no NPT
  • 88 bottom-hole samples (tubing mounted) taken in 35 wells, with 100% capture rate
  • 48 jobs with SRO; 11 of which were wireless, with 100% operating efficiency
  • Performed India's first dual zone DST on a single trip with both zones perforated underbalanced and tested independently, saving over 6 days of rig time
  • As a result of exemplary service quality and product/technology offering, Expro was retained for a second three-year term, with an increased number of packages
