Conductor cementing support systems
CLAXTON’S CONDUCTOR CEMENTING SUPPORT SYSTEM CAN SAVE SIGNIFICANT RIG TIME ON EACH CONDUCTOR BEING INSTALLED.
It has become increasingly common for operators to install a jacket, drill through the jacket structure and batch-set the platform’s conductors ready to install the topsides. This is followed by a rig being brought over the jacket and used to run the conductors. Traditionally the rig would have to hold each conductor in place while the cement cured, however, Claxton has devised a vital time-saving solution.
Tailored to operational requirements, Claxton’s conductor cementing support system reduces rig time by between 12 and 18 hours per conductor during the cementing process. The low-profile design engages under the starter-head at the required height and is then hydraulically actuated to hold the conductor in position for the cement curing time. This removes the requirement for the rig to maintain the starter-head position and is free to skid over to the next slot to run the next conductor.
It is possible to increase efficiencies even further with this system by having two conductor cementing support systems running simultaneously on a project. Whether one or two systems are used, the process greatly reduces the time required to batch-set conductors and delivers significant rig time savings.
The financial benefit of the Claxton conductor cementing system is a clear choice when batch setting conductors. The system has proven itself in the field on projects for major operators in the North Sea.
