Maiden voyage for Claxton’s new cut verification technology on Gulf of Mexico project

Maiden voyage for Claxton’s new cut verification technology on Gulf of Mexico project

Claxton was originally approached by an operator in August 2017 to support a high-profile pile cutting decommissioning work scope. The requirement was to abrasively sever four of the eight 54” main piles below the mudline.

An operator identified a requirement for the provision of abandonment services to support their ongoing platform decommissioning project in the UK sector of the central North Sea. The client’s initial planning and decommissioning evaluation of the facilities influenced their decision to contact Claxton in 2017. The requirement was to plan and perform abrasive mid-water conductor/casing severance and recovery of 28 wells, using a drilling rig.
