Expro Excellence
Frank’s Tubular Running Services (TRS) Well Construction
Expro delivers conductor pre-installation for three remote Geothermal wells
Customer challenges
  • The client needed to install three 30” conductor strings to depths below the shallow water flows at 26’ in Bouillante, Guadeloupe, a remote island in the Caribbean, where conventional drill in methods would not work
  • The main challenge with driving the conductor to the desired penetration depths on land was utilizing a construction crane prior to the drill rig arriving
  • Another challenge was the coordination of remote logistics and mobilizing the necessary equipment and personnel to a location with limited drilling infrastructure
Expro Excellence
  • Expro utilized a specially designed land frame to support the conductor vertically during initial operation
  • Expro’s personnel provided expert knowledge to the customer throughout the project
  • Expro provided the welded pipe, fabricated drive shoes for each of the three planned wells and welding support
  • All equipment was mobilized from our Lafayette office along with experienced personnel
  • Expro installed the three conductor strings at 92’, 76’ and 34’ respectively
  • Expro successfully delivered the project with limited access to logistics and infrastructure
Value to client
  • By utilizing our 60+ years of conductor installation methods we were able to safely install the three wells offline prior to the drilling rig mobilization
  • Utilizing the customer’s soil boring data, we performed a drive prediction analysis to determine the hammer size and the projected penetration based on pile geometry
  • Expro provided on the spot advice to the client to improve their operations
