Industry leading innovations

Claxton’s innovative approach to the offshore operating challenges faced by our clients has resulted in a number of significant industry awards.

Claxton have achieved several industry firsts that have been recognised and awarded. In 2009, Claxton supplied the world’s first 12,200-psi, high-pressure, high-temperature riser technology. We also performed the first rigless well abandonment in the North Sea in the Leman field for Perenco and, in 2014, completed the first rigless removal of a stuck bottomhole assembly during slot recovery.
