Altus Intervention was selected as Well Intervention Services provider in support of the Lead Well Engineering Contractor, AGR Well Management, the subsequent winner of ‘The OGUK Award for Excellence in Decommissioning’, on behalf of the Operator, PSE Kinsale Energy Limited.
Following an early review of the scope of work, Altus Intervention determined, given the operating constraints within the dual confines of space and accommodation, that the Altus Integrated Multi-Disciplinary Services (iMS) model would effectively service the scope of work whilst minimising POB and equipment. The crew capability catered for slickline, e-line, tractor, and PMA service provisions, covering planned and contingent operations:
The combined platform and subsea P&A campaigns were successfully completed within the Operator’s overall schedule, notwithstanding the additional challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The multi-disciplined 3/Shift iMS crews approach resolved both the POB and services challenge by reducing crew size by some 18% whilst covering 100% of required campaign services.
Despite the logistical challenges, the Altus team ensured an efficient, safe and reliable operation. Having a combined e-line/slickline crew helped greatly with the frequent changes between SL/EL and collaboration between all parties both offshore and onshore was excellent.
