Press Release   •   Sep 20, 2010 10:41 BST

International oilfield service company Expro will be demonstrating the strength of its global product range at this year’s SPE Annual Technology Conference (ATCE), Italy (20-22 September 2010).

Expro will highlight new developments across its well flow management portfolio, as well as demonstrating the benefits brought to its customers by its well established and superior products and services.

Expro offers the complete package of solutions to its customers, across the lifecycle of their wells, from exploration and appraisal to abandonment. Among the technologies on show will be:

Clamp-on metering

Visitors will learn of the benefits brought to the industry by the Expro Meters range of clamp-on sonar-based metering technology.

Expro Meters offers round-the-clock, 24/7 well surveillance, providing operators with a permanent solution to their wellhead production surveillance needs. They are clamp-on, non intrusive, easily installed and applied without production shutdown. Expro Meters are also available on demand worldwide to provide quick and easy well testing services through its portable clamp-on meters.

The latest enhancement of the Expro Meters range will be unveiled at ATCE. The TPS1000 is the industry’s first clamp-on system designed to provide real-time gas and liquid rates for condensate wells. Utilising Expro’s revolutionary clamp-on ActiveSONARTM meter, the TPS1000 takes multiphase well flow surveillance to the next level.  

Deepwater Intervention

Also on show will be Expro’s solution to subsea well intervention – the AX-S system – which will break new ground in deepwater intervention when it comes to the market.

AX-S™ (pronounced ‘access’) brings cost-effective, riser-less intervention to wells in up to 10,000ft of water. Expro’s goal is to deliver a full range of wireline intervention services in deepwater wells at substantially less than the cost of using a rig. Visitors to the stand will learn more about the capabilities of this new technology through discussions with the senior AX-S team.


Expro’s award-winning FlowCAT technology is a wireless controlled safety valve that can be retrofitted into a well after the tubing retrievable safety valve or control line has failed. Being controllable from surface and of a fail-safe design, FlowCAT provides a more dependable and safer alternative to a storm choke, a more cost-effective alternative to performing a well workover and minimises periods of deferred production.

Expro Chief Operating Officer Chris Mawtus said: “ATCE is an important platform for Expro to demonstrate the strengths of our existing technologies, and to highlight the technological advances that continue to be made across our global product lines. Expro’s investment in technology enhances the range of bespoke solutions that we can offer our customers.”
Expro is at Stand 1007.
