Light well intervention vessel en route to Oyo FieldProjects and Operations // March 30, 2016
Erin Energy Corporation says Island Constructor, a light well intervention (LWI) vessel has departed Skalevic, Norway and is en route to the Oyo field, offshore Nigeria.
The vessel will be used for LWI service on the Oyo-8 well, which has been necessitated by the failure of the well’s sub-surface controlled sub-surface safety valve (SCSSV) to open following a planned production curtailment in the Oyo field. The company expects to complete the intervention and re-opening of the SCSSV in April 2016.
The vessel is anticipated to arrive on the Oyo field mid-April and will immediately commence work on Oyo-8. The company said it expects the intervention to take a few days to complete and to subsequently re-establish production from the well.
