SILS sets record for riserless interventionOceaneering International, Inc. successfully completed the deepest open water riserless intervention work to date using the Subsea Intervention Lubricator System (SILS) in the Gulf of Mexico at a depth exceeding 2600 fsw.

Performed from the Olympic Intervention IV, a DP-2 MSV equipped with two work class ROVs, the SILS has capabilities for production support, rig support, and decommissioning (P&A) including stub removal.

The SILS offers an alternative strategy to a drilling rig for lowering costs of wireline based well intervention services.
