CIS installs directional conductors

Conductor Installation Services (CIS) has successfully installed directional conductors to form the basis of two new production wells as part of a project offshore Australia.

Working from the Sea Drill West Telesto jack up rig, CIS used a 150 kJ hydraulic hammer to install the conductors, driving them approximately 126 m subsea and a further 117 m below the mudline to their respective target depths. The total length of each conductor extended 243 m.

Group Managing Director of CIS, Andy Penman, commented: “Because the project plays such a vital role in the supply of gas to Australians, we are acutely aware of how important it is that each and every phase of construction is completed safely, with attention to detail and sensitivity to the environment. We are extremely pleased that this inaugural operation for this operator was a success.”
