Plexus to support Aker BP’s exploration drilling
Aker BP has ordered surface exploration wellhead equipment from Plexus for the Hyrokkin and Nordfjellet standard pressure exploration wells offshore Norway.
Initial value of the contract is around £0.7 million ($0.91 million), with potential for the contract to be extended to include further wells in the future.
Plexus will supply its new POS-PEED connector, claimed to deliver additional time savings for the operator.
This is a further development of the company’s 18¾-in. POS-GRIP friction-grip method of wellhead engineering through the BOP surface wellhead.
Each well is likely to take around 30 days to drill.
