PARIS – A subsidiary of TechnipFMC has agreed to provide riserless light well intervention (RLWI) services to INPEX at the Ichthys field, 220 km (137 mi) offshore Western Australia, for the Ichthys LNG project.

TechnipFMC will deploy its deepwater RLWI stack and two Schilling Robotics ROVs from theIsland Performer vessel to undertake riserless well access services on up to 20 subsea wells, starting later this year.

Barry Glickman, president of Subsea Services at TechnipFMC, said: “Our RLWI stacks have been used to complete more than 400 RLWI operations over the last 10 years.

“RLWI helps operators improve well productivity and equipment uptime, and reduce cost by shifting intervention work from rigs to lower-cost vessels.”
