TechnipFMC has announced that its subsidiary has signed an agreement with INPEX Operations Australia for riserless light well intervention (RLWI) services in the Ichthys field for the Ichthys LNG Project.

The field is located approximately 220 km offshore Western Australia. Under the terms of the agreement, TechnipFMC will deploy its deepwater RLWI stack, as well as two Schilling Robotics ROVs, from the Island Performer vessel, to carry out riserless well access services on up to 20 wells in the field. Work will commence in 2017.

Barry Glickman, the President of Subsea Services for TechnipFMC, said: “This project represents the next step in TechnipFMC’s strategy for geographic expansion of RLWI services.

“Our RLWI stacks have been used to complete more than 400 RLWI operations over the last 10 years. RLWI helps operators improve well productivity and equipment uptime, and reduce cost by shifting intervention work from rigs to lower-cost vessels. We are proud to be selected by the Ichthys LNG Project to support well access services work in the Ichthys field.”
