Erin Energy informed that the Island Constructor light well intervention (LWI) vessel has completed work on the Oyo-8 well and the company has resumed production from the well.
Erin Energy will 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, the company said.
The vessel performed LWI service on the Oyo-8 well off Nigeria, 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.
“We are pleased to have Oyo-8 back on production with the work completed on time and within budget,” said Segun Omidele, CEO. “I thank the team and our service partners for their quick and efficient work.”
