The well is a gas producer with a deviation of 48º that was completed with 5”completion in 1985.
Well integrity problems forced the operator to shut-in the well and to plan a re-completion workover.
Reservoir condition was such that killing the well would cause a significant production loss due to formation damage.
HWO/Snubbing operation was required to perform the remedial works on the live well.
The primary objective was to retrieve the 600m long straddle without killing the well on the formation, set a plug in the tail pipe and replacing the leaking Cr-13 completion.
