ORDER FROM ONE OF THE WORLD'S OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY GIANTS - WEATHERFORD (USA)
In early June Expom SA received an order to produce drilling equipment components for the search and extraction of shale gas from one of the world’s leaders in the oil and gas industry, Weatherford (USA). Thanks to this contract Expom SA, in accordance with the adopted development strategy, introduced the new gas and oil industry to its scope of activities. Work on this project lasted more than 8 months.
The first meeting with Weatherford representatives was held during November 2010 in San Antonio (USA) at the SPE Tight Gas Conference & Exhibition. During March 2011, Weatherford representatives visited Expom SA headquarters in Kurzętnik and conducted an audit, which enabled them to determine if the Polish company would be able to meet their high standards. Expom SA passed this review, and a subsequent meeting with Weatherford representatives took place during May 2011 at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston (USA). The culmination of eight-months of efforts was Weatherford’s first orders to produce drilling equipment components for the search and extraction of shale gas, which is currently being fulfilled by Expom SA.
