Claxton’s unrivalled product range, proven experience and world-class design and analysis capabilities coupled with our project delivery and after-market service, makes Claxton the centre of excellence for drilling risers.

With over three decades of experience, Claxton has pioneered subsea and surface riser technology, along with installation tooling, allowing us to offer a uniquely innovative approach to all of our clients' riser requirements. 

We supply riser systems for a variety of pressure and bore size configurations. Our in-house design and project engineering capabilities, combined with our vast inventory of riser components, means that we are uniquely placed to provide the most efficient cost-effective solution on a bespoke project basis.  

Depending on project requirements, we can offer purchase options or flexible rental terms. Our expert crews can install the system offshore and, for most items, we offer 100% equipment back-up. For clients that prefer to hold their own equipment, our full integration strategy enables us to provide a full design, manufacture and project management service – incorporating riser analysis and certification to the required specification. Additionally, Claxton can offer full after-market service to ensure clients’ equipment is inspected and maintained.

Case Study


Back in June 2014 Claxton secured the contract for the installation of a fully forged drilling riser system for a field development in the Central North Sea for Premier Oil using the Ensco 100. The High Pressure (HP) Subsea Riser will be used on at least 18 wells over the three-and-a-half-year period of the contract with potential opportunity for further wells. 18 months since the riser was mobilized a number of key milestones have been achieved which are summarized in this case study.
