Posted on August 15, 2023

Thru-Tubing Systems instrumental in helping Helix Energy Solutions set a new deepest deployment record for the Helix 10K Intervention Riser System (IRS) on a deepwater well.

The Q4000 performed a flow back on an unnamed well at a water depth of 2,851 meters.

The Q4000 completed the flow back successfully, also performing a Thru-Tubing screen replacement, the company said.

TTS was successful in running insert screen, setting packer and testing.

This was the first time a major oil company has ran insert screens in the GOM and used active coil to log packer and screens on depth.

TTS was able to design and qualify a high expansion packer to allow operation to move forward and included:

  • Formation of a plan for picking up screens with all parties involved, worked plan to success
  • Picked up ~1200’ of screens in ~6 hours
  • Waited for weather to ensure safe job was performed
