The article focuses on the use of riserless light well intervention system (RLWIS) to raise oil reserve recovery rates in North Sea. It outlines the advantages of this system including its ability to provide lower costs access to subsea wells, and its capacity to customize the workover in a more efficient and faster way. A test of the RLWIS conducted by the FMC Technologies Inc. in 2006 and 2007 reveals that it has increased its overall oil recovery to 46%. Features of the system are also given.
