ACTEON IS A LEADING ENGINEERING AND SERVICE PROVIDER FOR THE INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL OF WELLS AND OFFSHORE INFRASTRUCTURE
We offer 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.

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.
Complete severance and recovery solution for 28 wells using SABRE™
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.
Unique rigless subsea decommissioning solution featuring SWAT™
Operators are now under increasing pressure to develop clear late-life strategies to remain robust and profitable in a harsh margin environment. To achieve this, it’s important that a reliable and expert decommissioning supply chain can be relied on for guidance and support.
