Subsea Intervention Lubricator Rapid mobilization for light well operations
The Subsea Intervention Lubricator is a single trip system that allows access to subsea wells, making possible safe and efficient riserless well intervention and riser-based coiled tubing operations from a monohull vessel.
Helix Well Ops SILs provide a potential cost-savings of 40 to 60 percent in comparison to using a drilling rig by greatly reducing mobilization time for life-of-well operations including wire line, logging, light perforating, zone isolation, plug setting and removal, and decommissioning.
The 7 3/8” SIL creates a system that gives access to large bore subsea assets in deeper water and the ability to perform coiled tubing or wireline operations.
The 7 3/8” SIL features an electro-hydraulic control system which provides a high level of redundancy and excellent reliability. The Control system is integrated topside to Hydraulic/Grease generation and distribution systems as well as the Subsea system and third party subsea trees.
The 5 1/8” SIL system is now in its third generation, and is an established method for interfacing with vertical and small bore subsea trees without the need for a rig. The SIL, with its fully hydraulic control system has proven itself economically and operationally effective for intervention, pumping and abandonment work.
