Expro man offshoreEnergy services provider Expro has announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Coretrax, a technology leader in well integrity and production optimisation solutions, from an investment group led by Buckthorn Partners.

The acquisition of Coretrax will enable Expro to expand its portfolio of cost-effective, technology-enabled well construction and well integrity solutions, particularly across the North and Latin American, Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, and the Middle East and North Africa. Building on Coretrax’s successful 15-year history, the acquisition will accelerate the availability of the company’s innovative tools by leveraging Expro’s global operating footprint.

Michael Jordan, Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are thrilled to announce our proposed acquisition of Coretrax and look forward to welcoming John Fraser and his teammates to the Expro family.

“Coretrax has a complementary offering to Expro with little overlap and will bolster the portfolio of technology-enabled services and solutions offered through our Well Construction and Well Intervention & Integrity product lines, adding significant value to our clients from innovative technologies that reduce risk and cost, optimise drilling efficiency, extend the life of existing well stock, and optimise production.”

John Fraser, CEO at Coretrax, commented, “The synergies between our respective technology portfolios will enable us to grow our market share while significantly increasing our capabilities to tackle the most complex well challenges. We are proud of the innovation-led approach, strong customer base and performance history that we developed over the last 15 years, and we look forward to joining forces with Expro to create greater value for our customers globally.”
