Hot bolting

Hot bolting - main 1

WHEN BREAKING DOWN WELLHEADS, XMAS TREES AND OTHER CRUCIAL EQUIPMENT DURING THE DECOMMISSIONING PHASE OF A PROJECT, CLAXTON’S TECHNOLOGY TAKES THIS OFF THE CRITICAL PATH OF THE PROJECT, ACHIEVING A SAFE AND COST-EFFECTIVE OUTCOME.

Free bolts safely and efficiently off the critical path.

Hot bolting is the practice of removing, replacing or freeing and re-tightening bolts and tiedown screws on live piping, wellheads and Xmas trees.

Understanding that the operation presents many potential hazards is why Claxton has developed specialist tooling to mitigate the risks and exercise the utmost caution when planning and carrying it out this procedure.

This hot bolting solution is designed to be simple but safe. By performing these operations off the critical path, Claxton gains the ability to identify problem wells and undertake remedial works to ensure the risks to the critical paths are mitigated.
