Gulf Marine Services (GMS) has accomplished its first nicely intervention workscope utilizing the corporate’s cantilever workover system, put in on the self-propelled vessel GMS Evolution.
GMS stated on Tuesday that, below a contract for a NOC shopper within the MENA area, this was the primary event that the cantilever system has been used on a reside nicely.
The expertise was designed and developed by GMS.
GMS defined that the important thing operational benefits of cantilever expertise embody eliminating lifting over reside wellheads, discount in well-intervention time, a radical enchancment in switch time, platform to platform, over typical rigs, and consequent value financial savings for the sector operator.
According to GMS, the workscope concerned a heavy coiled tubing nicely intervention, required a number of modifications of backside gap meeting, and was carried out in a 3rd of the time that this operation would historically take.
GMS added that additional efficiencies have been achieved, with actions between platforms diminished to a tenth of the time taken by a traditional drilling rig, which is typically used for intervention actions.
The GMS Evolution has now moved to the following platform within the discipline to finish an identical scope.
Tim Summers, GMS Executive Chairman, stated: “GMS is the one firm on the earth with this SESV expertise”.
Summers added: “The cantilever system onboard Evolution is able to finishing up facets of nicely workover exercise usually performed by a drilling rig; nonetheless, its actual power comes when frequent strikes throughout the discipline are required.
“Being self-propelled, and in contrast to a drilling rig, the vessel doesn’t depend on tug assist so can transfer between places at a fraction of the time a drilling rig requires. This gives important value and time financial savings to our purchasers for a nicely intervention programme”.
