Erin Energy Hires Island Constructor for Oyo Work

Erin Energy has mobilized the Island Constructor light well intervention (LWI) vessel to the Oyo field, offshore Nigeria.

The vessel will be used for LWI service on the Oyo-8 well, which has been necessitated by the failure of the well’s sub-surface controlled sub-surface safety valve (SCSSV) to open following a planned production curtailment in the Oyo field, the company said.

The completion of the intervention and re-opening of the SCSSV is expected in April 2016.

Island Constructor is anticipated to arrive on the Oyo field mid-April and will immediately start work on the well.

According to the company, the intervention is expected take a few days to complete and to subsequently re-establish production from the well.
