Fugro, Cross Group wins multi-well GoM contract

Fugro’s dynamically positioned multi-purpose drilling, well intervention and geotechnical vessel, Fugro Synergy, is proving her capabilities on a multi-well-intervention campaign that recently started in the Gulf of Mexico.

The well-intervention campaign involves utilisation of a top tensioned 6 5/8” riser and coiled tubing, and fieldwork for the contract is being undertaken jointly by the Cross Group and Fugro. It employs the expertise of both organisations, providing a safe, efficient and cost-effective field-proven mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU).

The vessel was designed and built specifically for well intervention services, and with her impressive technical specification, Fugro Synergy truly complements MODU-based operations. Complete with a top tension riser system, this allows through-riser intervention activities. “The tower on Fugro Synergy allows us to run pipe, as opposed to either using a crane over the side, or running riser-less well intervention equipment”, explained Kevin Bosley, managing director at Fugro Drilling and Well Services. “The Cross Group’s 7-inch work-over riser packages are being run from Fugro Synergy, with both of our organisations focused on providing joint capabilities for a total light well intervention solution.”
