A more efficient CT intervention technique
Interventions on small platforms with limited deck space and loading capacity often require the use of jackup barges, lift boats, or workover rigs. The high cost and limited availability of these offshore vessels has delayed or prevented many required interventions, leaving a number of wells nonproductive or producing below their optimal capacity.
The catenary CT intervention technique uses smaller floating vessels and proprietary safety and well-control systems that eliminate the need to lift the CT reel and the pumping equipment to the platform. The resulting lower total intervention cost combined with an ability to work on extremely small platforms enable interventions that increase profitability and extend production life.
