Cold cutting services

Cold Cutting Services from CIS

As part of the comprehensive conductor installation service, the conductor is cold cut once it has been driven into the seabed. In addition, internal and external bevels are cut to suit client specifications.

This leaves the client with a fully installed conductor that is ready for wellhead installation.

Lightweight, slimline, Zone I cold-cutting tools are used so that work can be carried out on platforms that have live producing wells without loss of production.

The air-driven cutting machines are suitable for use in hazardous environments. Their lightweight sectional design means the machines are simple to install around casing, and they also are easily adjustable for cutting at a range of part-off heights. In addition, the cold-cutting operations are classified as cold work, so no hot-work permit is required.

Precision machine-finish cutting of tubing, casing, conductors and piles ranging from 7” to 42” in outer diameter. Cold cutting services are offered both as standalone service or as part of an integrated conductor installation package.

Flexibility is always a key requirement for cold cutting applications and systems can be adjusted on request to suit numerous applications, which service technicians have deep experience with.

Cold cutting system benefits:

  • Lightweight modular design allows easy installation and quick adjustment
  • Increases safety and improves operational efficiency
  • Rugged field-proven design
  • Simultaneous cutting and bevelling.
