Expro to expand Norwegian facilities with new base

International oilfield services company, Expro, plans to open a major new base in Tananger, Norway in summer 2015. The 19,000m2 facility will consolidate the company’s three current Stavanger area locations and house Expro’s Well Testing and Drill Stem Testing product lines currently operating in the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The base will consist of an office building equipped for 100 staff, a 5000m2 yard and a 10,600m2 workshop. The new workshop will have the facility to rig-up four well test packages, and service a further six, simultaneously. The new facility will complement its other Norwegian offices in Bergen and Haugesund.

Keith Palmer, Europe CIS Region Director, comments: “Expro is fully committed to maintaining its position as the market-leading well test company in Norway. We continue to see our business in Norway expand and as such have outgrown our existing facilities. The design of our new base will allow us to efficiently manage and maintain our equipment whilst providing clients with specialised staff and industry-leading service delivery. Furthermore, the workshop and pressure testing facilities at the new base have been fully designed to ensure the highest health, safety and environmental standards.”
