Claxton has played a pioneering role in rigless technology … ‘Innovoil’ discusses

In a special supplement on Decommissioning, in June’s edition of Innovoil Tim Skelton reports on how rigless P&A techniques are bringing down costs.


Tim talks about how Claxton has played an early pioneering role on the rigless front. He explains how our P&A of the Perenco Well A1 in the Leman field was one of the first exercises of its kind in the North Sea, carried out without using a jack-up rig. While this required a fair degree of bespoke project planning and engineering, Claxton has since been involved in many other North Sea platform well campaigns – mostly without the need for a platform crane or drilling rig. The article also provides an overview on our suspended well abandonment tool – SWAT and how Claxton has successfully deployed the cutting, abandonment and recovery tooling across the world.
