Covering the full lifecycle from the acquisition of subsea data, to bespoke drilling packages to onshore disposal
Acteon is a leading engineering and service provider for the installation and removal of wells and offshore infrastructure, offering bespoke drilling and decommissioning solutions that are safe, fit for purpose and commercially attractive to customers.
Our capabilities include well engineering and environmental consultancy; engineering analysis and technology development; manufacturing and fabrication; drilling riser services; conductor and pile installation; offshore renewables support; asset life extension; and decommissioning.
We reduce project footprints by conducting efficient rigless activities, providing multiskilled personnel across services and deploying technologies that improve operational efficiency. Acteon also provides a single development drilling support solution, which means fewer interfaces and contracts, better communications and lower costs.
At Acteon, we add value by challenging convention and developing alternative approaches and new technologies. We can optimise and reduce the costs of decommissioning operations, including subsea and platform rigless well abandonments and subsea and floating infrastructure removals, without compromising on quality.
Services and technology allowing the rigless abandonment, severance and recovery of surface and subsea wells to optimise rig and vessel time.
Asset life extension
Solutions for a wide range of asset types to extend usable lifespan by providing repair and upgrade services to existing assets.
Specialised drilling and life of well design, planning, engineering and analysis along with well integrity management services.
Engineering analysis and technology development

Manufacturing and fabrication
Our engineered manufacturing and fabrication services provide an integrated design, analysis, manufacture and fabrication resource to all markets.
Wells – Drilling riser services
We evaluate, design, manage and install complete riser and tensioning systems to allow safe and environmentally friendly control and capture of pressurised drilling fluids.
Conductor and pile installation
Our high-tech hammer equipment and multi-skilled engineers enable us to deliver piling services for all manner of surface and subsea construction projects.
The benefits of how we work
We optimise the project to increase commercial value
Our focus is on reducing the cost per well abandonment, without compromising on safety. We apply technology to improve reliability through well sealing, laser cutting and cut verification.
We minimise the environmental impact
Market-leading abrasive technology minimises/optimises rig and vessel time, restoring the site to a clean post-industrial setting and supporting artificial reefing to protect marine life.
We combine digital technology and data to enhance our expertise
Collecting, managing and interpreting complex geo-reference data to guide future actions including fatigue analysis and remedial action.
