Case Study


When our sister company InterMoor, approached Claxton to consider a technical challenge an operator had, our partnership was key in considering an approach for the decommissioning of four wells, three wells in the Southern North Sea and one well in the East Irish Sea; three wells having subsea wellheads and one having a mudline system.
