Bowtech Provide Observation System for SHELL Decommissioning Project
Monday, Nov 28, 2011

A Bowtech camera system has been successfully deployed to observe decommissioning operations on the L13FH well which is operated by Shell in the Dutch Sector of the Southern North Sea.

We were requested by Shell UK to supply a camera system to be fitted to the L13FH well.  Bowtech engineers, working with Shell, designed and supplied a complete camera and lighting system to suit. This included twelve of our LCC-600 cameras and twelve LED-G-800 lamps, all umbilicals, all brackets, two CVIS-3 compact video inspection systems and two purpose designed video switching junction boxes. The cameras and lights were fitted to various points on the well to observe operations as the well was worked on for abandonment.

Doug Cowie, Senior Subsea Intervention Engineer at Shell UK, said “The Bowtech System installed on L13FH was easily set up, with good onshore support as required. This allowed it to prove itself as being very effective in its role as part of the abandonment program“
