SABRE abrasive cutting system

Claxton Sabre SABRE abrasive cutting system


Proven across multiple global campaigns, our patented SABRE™ internal abrasive severance package will cut all the casings in a well, including those with eccentricity, or various annuli contents and casing loading.

SABRE has an extensive track record and has proven to be an invaluable tool based on its successful use on some of the most significant abandonment campaigns in the North Sea. Having cut over 150 multi-string wells in waters up to 130 meters deep, and 28 wells in a single campaign, SABRE makes light work of even composite materials such as cemented casings.

The equipment uses a mixture of air, water and abrasive garnet at up to 1,000 bar to cut through the multiple steel casings and annuli, with the abrasive jet exiting the tool at transonic speeds ensuring optimal cutting performance. The system, when teamed with our other proprietary equipment, forms the backbone to the rigless abandonment spread.
