OSLO, Norway — AKOFS Seafarer has just completed mobilization for an upcoming three-well campaign as part of the five-year contract for well intervention for Equinor on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS), according to a AKOFS Offshore news release.
The work has been performed at the Myklebust yard in Norway.
Following successful riser-less interventions since second-half 2020, Equinor and AKOFS have mobilized for a riser-based campaign using coiled tubing through an option in the contract.
Utilizing its flexibility, a high-pressure workover riser system has been mobilized and added to the vessel together with a coiled tubing spread and fluid return treatment system.
The AKOFS Seafarer is in route to Equinor-operated fields Norne, Åsgard and Statfjord where well objectives will include scale, sand and debris removals, perforations as well as installation of plugs and screens.
"The AKOFS Seafarer has proven to be an extremely efficient vessel for riser-less interventions year-round on NCS thanks to its unique setup, size and layout as well as the OneTeam model implemented by AKOFS and its operating partners Archer, WellTec and IKM Subsea," the AKOFS stated in a news release.
