HOUSTON -- Expro's Tronic subsea connectors have been installed for BP on a pump project in the King field in the Gulf of Mexico. Expro supplied Tronic fiber optic connectors for the subsea umbilical termination assemblies and control pods on the subsea pump stations.
Expro has been working on the BP King contract since November 2005, and installed the equipment in the summer of 2007. The connectors are now operational.
The King project has set a new world record by applying this multiphase pumping technology in deep water at 1,800 m (5,906 ft) and an offset of 27 km (16.7 mi).
Production started in November 2007 and Expro now has further work on a field extension on King South.
