Plexus Holdings has received a purchase order ('PO') from Det Norske Oljeselskap ASA ('Det Norske') to supply surface wellhead and mudline equipment services for Geopilot#2, an oil and gas appraisal well on the Ivar Aasen development project, offshore Norway. Geopilot#2 will be the seventh Det Norske well to use Plexus' POS-GRIP wellhead equipment since 2012, highlighting how the Company continues to win repeat business from its blue chip customer base. The value of the latest order is estimated at approximately £0.9 million with revenues expected to commence in February 2015.
Under the terms of the PO contract, Plexus will supply its 18-3/4" 15,000psi High pressure/ High Temperature ('HP/HT') adjustable surface wellhead and mudline system. The drilling of Geopilot#2 will directly follow the Geopilot#1 well which will also be using Plexus' POS-GRIP® based equipment. Both wells will be drilled using the recently built Maersk Interceptor rig. Plexus' equipment has been selected for use on the two wells as a result of its superior safety and performance capabilities, in addition to the time/cost savings it delivers.
