Expro hosted a grand opening event celebrating its new operations base in Paradise, Newfoundland, Canada. The custom-built facility supports the company’s growth in Newfoundland’s emerging offshore oil industry.
Expro has made a $3.4 million investment to create the base for its team in Newfoundland, a move that highlights the company’s commitment to the area.
The new facility supports the delivery of well testing, subsea and downhole video services for the region.
Located in the new Octagon Industrial Park, the facility accommodates a team of 30 people, the majority of whom are local employees. The base covers a two-acre lot and includes a four-bay workshop with 8,400 sq ft of warehouse area and an office annex with 6,000 sq ft of office space on two levels.
In recent years, Expro has secured multi-million dollar contracts to supply offshore well test equipment and services in Newfoundland. Currently, well test equipment and services are being provided on two offshore rigs for three major operating companies in eastern Canada.
“Canada has experienced strong growth during the past few years and Expro Canada has successfully secured contract wins to support the development,” said Carl Cooper, frontier division manager for Expro. “Eastern Canadian offshore is a critical part of our success and this new facility allows us to continue to deliver the highest standards for our customers at this exciting period for the region.”
The grand opening celebration included an official ribbon-cutting ceremony, facility tours and feature displays of Expro’s service capabilities. Special guests included Paradise mayor, Ralph Wiseman; local media; community dignitaries; and Expro chief operating officer, Mike Jardon, who led the ceremony.
