Well-Safe Guardian gets modular upgrade

Well-decommissioning company Well-Safe Solutions has partnered with Trendsetter Engineering to fit the Well-Safe Guardian semi-submersible rig with the Trident Intervention System.

Its main application will be in open water intervention riser mode, providing secure mechanical access for wireline or coiled tubing operations.

The partnership provides the Aberdeen-based company, now five years old, with exclusive access to the system in the UK for well plug and abandonment.

Robin Kimber, Well-Safe Guardian Rig Manager, said: “Well-Safe Solutions prides itself on its bespoke P&A offering, offering our clients the flexibility and technical superiority required to carry out well decommissioning operations safely and efficiently. Trendsetter’s clear expertise in this field, as well as the versatility of the Trident system, makes it an ideal fit for the Well-Safe Guardian – the first asset we have converted to exclusively carry out well decommissioning operations.”
