Claxton Engineering is awarded £1m EnCana Deep Panuke Project

Claxton Engineering Services Ltd, an Acteon company, has been awarded a contract
worth in excess of GBP 1 million by a leading North American natural gas producer EnCana.

Claxton Engineering will be supplying subsea risers, interface connections and personnel for drilling and completions operations for five wells on a high-pressure natural gas platform, set in depths of 44 metres, 175km offshore of Nova Scotia, in the Deep Panuke field.

During Q2, 2009, the equipment will be shipped to Halifax, where Claxton Engineering will prepare it for operations before it is taken offshore. The project is being conducted from a Rowan Gorilla class jack-up rig and drilling is scheduled to commence Q3 of 2009, with Claxton engineers on hand to help run and pull the riser. It is expected that the project will be producing by 2010.

Claxton’s sister company, 2H Offshore, will be providing riser analysis throughout the operation.

Laura Claxton, Managing Director, Claxton Engineering Services said,

This is a long term, high value contract to be conducted offshore Nova Scotia. This contract marks Claxton’s entrance to the North American sector and we have been selected for this because Claxton can provide a high quality and best value full riser supply service.
