Wellhead maintenance

Claxton has decades experience of working with wellheads and┬áprovides cost-effective wellhead maintenance services – and, because we’re independent of the major wellhead manufacturers, we have experience of all types of wellhead and wellhead equipment.

Compared to the cost of an emergency valve body sealing job, a preventative maintenance routine will quickly pay for itself


Claxton’s service line include wellhead maintenance, replacement, refurbishment and installation (pictured).
