Erin Energy restarts Oyo-8 well following well intervention

Independent oil company Erin Energy Corporation informed on Tuesday that the Island Constructor light well intervention (LWI) vessel has completed work on the Oyo-8 well, offshore Nigeria, and the company has resumed production from the well.

To remind, the Island Offshore-owned vessel departed Norway heading for the Oyo field, offshore Nigeria, at the end of March.

After the arrival, the vessel performed LWI service on the Oyo-8 well, to open the sub-surface controlled sub-surface safety valve (SCSSV), which failed to re-open following a planned production curtailment in the Oyo field.

Erin Energy stated it would now begin a ramp up of production from the well over the next few days to pre-shut in levels of approximately 7,000 barrels of oil per day.

“We are pleased to have Oyo-8 back on production with the work completed on time and within budget,” said Segun Omidele, Chief Operating Officer.”

Erin Energy has a 100% interest in Oil Mining Leases 120 and 121 located offshore Nigeria.

The OML 120 contains the Oyo Field which is located approximately 75 km (46 miles) from the coast in water depths ranging from 200 to 500 meters. The Oyo Field started production in December 2009, and the wells are connected to the Armada Perdana FPSO.
