Subsea Well Abandonment Rig Sharing (SWARS) Program

InterAct was the management contractor for the SWARS Program, which successfully plugged & abandoned 23 subsea wells on California state tidelands.  This work was performed for a consortium of six oil companies who coordinated their individual P&A projects through a multi-operator agreement.

InterAct was tasked with facilitating this coordination, final permitting & compliance, rig selection & mobilization, contracting, program scheduling, field supervision, public interface, and reporting. Execution work included preliminary site surveys and wellhead inspection, preparation of wellheads for re-entry, well P&A work, recovery of seafloor debris, and removal/salvage/disposal of wellhead/pipeline components. The fieldwork utilized an Adriatic Class jackup rig (mobilized from West Africa). The SWARS Program field work was completed one month ahead of schedule, and the entire program cost was approximately $5MM below budget.
