ABERDEEN, UKZenith Energy has completed P&A operations on a platform well at the Ombrina Mare field offshore eastern Italy.

The company provided well engineering and project management services to operator Rockhopper Exploration, using the jackupAtwood Beacon.

The scope over the five-month program covered re-entering the existing well on the unmanned platform, bullheading operations, removal of completion, casing and wellhead equipment, and setting of permanent barrier cement plugs.

Operations director Chris Collie said: “The project involved all operations that you would typically expect in a well abandonment - slick line, wireline, christmas tree removal, cementing, cutting and pulling casing and removal of topside wellhead equipment in a well with high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide and A annulus pressure issues.”
