Expro Excellence
Cased Hole Services Mechanical Slickline
Expro Slick-E-line delivers significant efficiencies in UKCS P&A campaign
Customer challenges
  • A long-standing customer was looking to create a hydrocarbon free platform safely and efficiently for decommissioning operations
  •  The customer was considering alternative ideas and new concepts to perform a plug and abandonment (P&A) decommissioning campaign, utilising a jack-up platform without a drilling derrick
  • Their primary focus was on delivering operational safety efficiencies to support rig time savings
  • Expro was chosen for their Slick-E-Line (SEL) capability that enabled all well intervention operations to be performed on one deployment method
Expro Excellence
  • Expro utilised a single deployment method solution, Slick-E-Line eliminated the need for polybutene grease normally utilised in E-Line operations
  • Our solution offered the customer a compact system with a smaller footprint, less personnel on board (POB) which could be rapidly deployed safely and cost efficiently
  • The operation reduced the project carbon footprint, minimising the runs in the hole and completing the operation ahead of schedule
Value to client
  • 7 wells were abandoned as per programme
  • The customer benefitted from a reduction in safety exposure due to the reduced rig up/ down/lifting operations, resulting in 16 fewer runs in hole compared to previous campaigns
  • The customer improved their P&A efficiencies and reduced rig time by 20%
