Production resumes from Oyo-8 well offshore Nigeria

Production has resumed from the Oyo-8 well offshore Nigeria after the Island Constructor light well intervention (LWI) vessel successfully completed work, Erin Energy Corp. reported on May 3.

The vessel was dispatched to Oyo-8 in March for service on the well’s subsurface controlled subsurface safety valve, which failed to reopen after a planned production curtailment on Oyo field (OGJ Online, Mar. 29, 2016).

Erin Energy will now begin a ramp up of production from the well over the next few days to pre-shut in levels of 7,000 b/d of oil. Production from the Oyo-8 and Oyo-7 wells began in May and June 2015, respectively (OGJ Online, June 18, 2015). Total output from the two wells in 2015 was 1.6 million bbl of oil.
