what is your challenge?

What are the symptoms of poor conductor centralization that could affect life of the well?

It is common for offshore facilities to experience excessive movement at the cellar deck level due to poor centralization at the splash zone. The first step to analyse the issue should be to record any pattern in the movement of the conductors, look for any damage to the centralization at the splash zone level and the state of the adjuster shoes. If required, Claxton can follow-up with a survey to find the root cause of the issue and offer retrofit centralizers.
