Oil Industry Intervention

Evening all. I keep hearing about ribs being used for intervention in the oil industry. Could anybody please be kind enough to let me know exactly what this entails? Thanks in advance.

I think it possibly involves divers but I'm not too sure.

May be something completely different to what you think, a good few years back I was involved in doing a couple of ribs with machine gun mounts on, they were used to combat piracy. They were called intervention craft on the export docs

I take it we're not talking North Sea then.

I think I may have answered my own question. I think what I'm referring to is well intervention which I believe is where work is basically carried out on an oil well during it life. Thanks for all your contributions.

You wouldn't use a rib for well interventions you need a bloody big specialist ship or rig for well interventions

Sorry, it's more than likely that I've just misunderstood. It must be the anti-piracy work that they were referring to. Thanks all the same though everyone.

that was my Black Magic a Parker 650 Diesel rib. Photos taken of the News on TV last year. The rib is probably back with Greenpeace or in service with the Russian Border Guards
