Six ways Claxton can help to reduce the cost of your offshore projects

Lifecycle stage
Drilling Production Late-Life Decommissioning

2. Reducing the cost of installing conductors

Our latest new tool, the Conductor Cementing Support System (pictured above), enables a rig to move on to running another conductor without waiting on cement – saving up to 18 hours of rig time each and every time you install a well conductor. Find out more about the new tool here.

3. Cost-effectively extending platform production life

Claxton recently designed an entirely modular replacement conductor guide deck – enabling our client to cost-effectively extend the working life of their platform by 20 years. Read more about the project here.

4. Delivering fast-track conductor reparation works

Everything we do at Claxton revolves around the well conductor – we regularly use this expertise to help operators find cost-effective ways to repair or replace conductors. Learn more about this capability in our case study from the Middle East.

5.  Saving $2.5m with rigless tubing recovery

6. Riglessly recovering platform slots/riglessly abandoning wells

We performed the first rigless platform well abandonment over a decade ago. Since then our tooling has been deployed on over 280 successful abandonment and slot or conductor recovery operations. Removing the drilling rig when dealing with platform well abandonment transform project cost. See how we solved an exceptionally challenging rigless project for MAERSK in our case study.


The examples shown above are just a few of the ways Claxton can help you reduce your operating costs through smarter engineering and methodologies – contact us today to talk to an engineer about what we can do to help your project succeed, or leave a comment below.
