Rigless and rig-based solutions

Lifecycle stage
Product or Service

Recovering tubing once the downhole severance has taken place is not an issue with Claxton’s array of flexible techniques which provide a decommissioning end-to-end solution.

Offshore decommissioning operations often require a bespoke solution when it comes to tubing recovery, which is why we engineer technology to save rig time for clients. Drawing from our experience in conductor recovery and well abandonment, Claxton delivers bespoke cutting and recovery packages which can negate the need for a rig. When combined with our well control, cutting and recovery packages and delivered by our expert crew, an end-to-end cost-effective solution is achieved.

Claxton’s clients’ operations benefit from our in-house design team who create recovery systems to interface with the existing well and platform systems enabling tubing to be pulled in varying lengths to suit the requirements. We recommend that our recovery interfaces are complemented by equipment from our cutting fleet which includes both bandsaw and SABRE™ abrasive jet cutting technology to achieve an optimal solution.

The tubing recovery service also includes all necessary safety devices including deck hatch covers which are designed to make well slots safe during the recovery phase.
