Standalone Intervention Riser System Well Ops Performance on Drilling Vessels
Well Ops provides flexibility to operators with contracted drilling vessels, bringing the proven Intervention Riser System and trained operations crews to the site to add well intervention to the capabilities list.
Helix utilizes its IRS to establish a connection from vessel to wellhead, with all control systems multiplexed to the operating vessel. This electronic setup reduces control response times to a fraction of a second, as opposed to the several seconds required for a mud pulse system to travel the length of the riser. IRS systems are available with through bore diameters to 13-5/8”, enabling a broad range of well intervention and completion tools to be tripped through the system.
