Patented technology from Claxton

Claxton’s platform and slot recovery operations are carried out using our patented cutting-edge technology.

First developed in 1999, our subsea abrasive cutting suite, SABRE, has proven to be an invaluable industry tool and has been successfully used in some of the world’s most significant abandonment campaigns. Its abrasive jet exits the tool at transonic speeds – making light work of even composite materials such as cemented casings. 

SABRE is supported by our RAPIER™ tubing bandsaws which are electrically powered and fully compliant for zone II environments. They do not require additional power packs and are classified to operate under a ‘cold’ permit to work.
