Operator benefits from retrofit conductor guide centralizer

Lifecycle stage


Subsea 7 reported that the work offshore to install the centralizers went well and was devoid of incident. It was agreed that the success of the project was helped by the excellent interaction between Claxton and the client.

Claxton project engineer Ann Vicens-Morton said about the project, “Collaboration is always the key. There has to be a willingness to discuss all aspects of the job and to work together to devise a practical, installer-friendly solution to the challenges expected offshore.”

“Solid preparation up-front has the power to save considerable time and, therefore, money during the offshore operations.”


Claxton was initially asked to supply 10 of the centralizers, all for 26-in. conductors: eight suitable for fitting in 36½-in. guides and two for 34-in. guides.

Later, Subsea 7 added one more of the latter design to the order and asked for this to be supplied within two weeks. Claxton delivered the centralizer 11 days after the formal request whilst completing the work for the original centralizers query.
