Plexus wins wellhead orders offshore Vietnam, the UK

Rosneft Vietnam has contracted Plexus Holdings to supply its POS-GRIP high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) adjustable rental exploration wellhead equipment for an exploration well offshore Vietnam.


This will be Plexus’ first project in Vietnam. The company says that it clinched the award based on factors such as performance, safety, time and cost savings of its wellhead technology, and the operational advantages provided by the BOP HP/HT capabilities.


In the UK southern North Sea, Centrica has contracted an 18¾-inch POS-GRIP “HG” 10,000-psi (689-bar) adjustable production wellhead for a gas production well at the Chiswick field.


All Plexus’ previous deliveries to the company have been for exploration wells.


Under the terms of the contract, Plexus will also manage the interface of its equipment with an existing production xmas tree, and supply its Tersus CS casing support system.


Well integrity should be enhanced, Plexus claimed, as the adjustable nature of POS-GRIP allows downhole casing support to be used without casing adjustment subs to space out to the wellhead.


The well is due to spud early next year.
