C-Innovation completes 46th well intervention in Gulf of Mexico
(WO) – C-Innovation (C-I), an aﬃliate of Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO) and its family of companies, has announced the completion of its 46th well intervention in the Gulf of Mexico.
C-I, a leader in providing turnkey intervention services for the global subsea industry, also successfully completed three new riserless zone perforations, an industry first in both deepwater and high-pressure operations. The well intervention program provides increased efficiency along with faster response times for emergent situations through the quick mobilization and deployment of a vessel.
C-I specializes in downhole operations, including production injection and integrity logging, caliper measurements, and setting water shut-off and zone bypass plugs. With more well intervention operations planned for 2023, C-I has played a pivotal role in increasing output for operators in the Gulf of Mexico.
George Wilson, riserless light well intervention project manager, C-I, said, “We are very proud to be a part of increasing oil production in this challenging geo-political climate. Riserless interventions on vessels offer both time and cost advantages over riser interventions. C-I’s program offers the added benefit of dedicated dock space with advanced fluid tracking for faster between-well maintenance.”
C-I’s well intervention program, which made its debut in 2017, has performed 31 hydraulic interventions and 15 mechanical interventions. The mechanical interventions included a total of 85 successful wireline runs, both e-line and slickline. C-I recently completed its longest mechanical intervention on board the vessel, Island Venture. With 79 days offshore, the operation included 22 e-line and slickline runs, as well as 22,205 barrels of fluid pumped into the well.
Wilson added, “C-I is a fully integrated service provider for our clients. Our turnkey solutions for well interventions alleviate the hassle of coordinating and managing the multitude of subcontractors needed to address complex jobs.
