Tubing, casing and conductor severance

Lifecycle stage
Product or Service

Quickly and effectively sever tubing, casing and conductor, with Claxton’s surface and tubing bandsaws to increase the overall efficiency of an offshore decommissioning operation.

Claxton’s casing and tubing bandsaws support offshore well abandonment or slot recovery operations where re-use is not planned.

Where an integrated solution is required on larger projects, bandsaws can be combined with Claxton’s platform well decommissioning package which includes multiple options for severing casing and tubing.

When combined with other Claxton cutting equipment in this way, our surface bandsaws become integral to the turnkey cutting and recovery solution that we provide for decommissioning projects.

Claxton’s surface bandsaws include the tubing bandsaw, RAPIER™ bandsaw, and lay-flat bandsaw. With accompanying tooling these can all be supplied on a flexible rental basis, with or without personnel.
