Abstract

The paper will discuss the introduction of a new method of completing wells whilst reducing the amount of time spent by rigs on each well drilled.

The information presented in the paper will enable operating companies to rethink their way in which they use their drilling rigs, and allow for more of the completion phase to be performed by lighter services such as coiled tubing and wireline.

Based on this new method of completions, up to 9 days per well can be saved on rigs per well. By utilizing this new method of completing wells, allows coiled tubing and wireline to move into a more dynamic market from a light well intervention vessel with a stiff riser solution.

This paper will explain how the use of coiled tubing and wireline in a much more effective way on subsea wells will increased the income of the operating companies, increase the use of known technology on wells where this has not been available before and explain how this set-up will allow for operations in harsh conditions from light well intervention units.
