Louisiana-based Cross Group has completed subsea live well intervention operations on three TFL template wells in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico using its 3-1/16” 10,000-psi subsea convertible live well intervention package in approximately 549 meters of water.
The Cross Group team performed the operation in the riserless configuration on two of the TFL template wells from a DP II multipurpose supply vessel MSV.
The third TFL template well operation was conducted from the client’s DP II semisubmersible rig, where Cross’ 3-1/16” 10,000-psi subsea convertible live well intervention package was deployed in the riser-based configuration.
According to Cross Group, each well was successfully completed without incident to personnel or equipment.
Heath Jones, Cross Group vice president, said: “Having the ability to deploy the system in either a riser and riserless configuration from a vessel of opportunity gives our clients a safe and proven alternative to the traditional rig-based subsea well intervention process; doing it with our team of people is what truly separates us from the other providers.”
