50th Successful IRSV UK North Sea Installation

Interwell UK Managing Director, Dave Aitken, presents Apache’s North Sea Completion team, accepted by Mark Smith (Lead Completion Engineer), with a commemorative trophy to celebrate the 50th successful IRSV Glass plug installation in the North Sea.

When used as a deep-set barrier and for production packer setting, the remotely operated IRSV removes the need to carry out additional well interventions, and over the past 5 years, has saved over 1,200 hours of rig time on Apache’s completion operations as well as allowing dedicated Well Services crews to continue scheduled work-scopes across the Forties field.

Dave and Mark are joined by Apache’s Joel Rodriguez, Chris Reilly, Ian Kenny and Craig Drysdale and Interwell’s Graham Masson and Tom Webster.

Interwell look forward to continuing to work in collaboration with Apache to deliver cost saving solutions to their well challenges.
