THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Blue Ocean Technologies has set another record for deepwater subsea interventions. Blue Ocean’s Interchangeable riserless intervention system (IRIS) recently intervened on a deepwater production well in the Gulf of Mexico’s Desoto Canyon, reaching a record-breaking 8,200 ft (2,499 m).
The patented IRIS is an ROV-compatible, fully integrated, multi-functional system that streamlines subsea interventions, completing numerous open-water wireline runs. This project marks the first time that wireline has been run in open water at 8,200 ft (2,499 m) deep.
For deepwater riserless interventions, Blue Ocean Technologies has set and shattered its own record-breaking depth achievements, including 2,950 ft (899 m) in 2009, 4,300 ft (1,220 m) in 2012, and 6,700 ft (2,042 m) in July of this year.
