Managing Director attendance at ICoTA Europe lunch and learn

Posted on 25th January 2017

Managing Director Andrew Mosley was pleased to attend the ICoTA Europe lunch and learn session on the 24th January in Aberdeen which was hosted by the winners of the 2016 Innovation Award, Shell, Helix Well Ops and Altus Intervention. The session discussed the innovative subsea coiled tubing intervention riser system which was designed for the Well Enhancer vessel. The development of this system and success of the initial operations campaign was recognised as a significant step in the continued development of intervention by the oil and gas industry.

AS Mosley was contracted to perform global riser analysis in support of the design of the intervention system and were pleased to hear directly about the success of the initial offshore campaign conducted in 2016 from all parties.

AS Mosley provided site specific global riser analysis in support of the Central North Sea coiled tubing operations for the operator and for a number of other prospective fields. The Well Enhancer was custom designed with a dynamically positioned well intervention and saturation diving system. The vessel includes provision for Wireline operations through a 7 3/8 u201d 10K Subsea Intervention Lubricator (SIL) and for coiled tubing operations through a 5 1/8 u201d 10K Intervention Riser System (IRS). This is the first coiled tubing development of its kind within the oil and gas industry and is a significant step in the continued development of the intervention industry. Already there is more interest from other operators to follow on from this campaign with riser-based coiled tubing intervention. Looking forward, there is great potential for riser-based coiled tubing intervention to be a growth area within the industry.
