SABRE abrasive cutting system

Oil & Gas
Product or Service


Proven across multiple global campaigns, Claxton’s patented SABRE™ internal abrasive severance package will cut all the casings in a well, including those with eccentricity, or various annuli contents and casing loading

SABRE has an extensive track record and has proven to be an invaluable tool based on its successful use on some of the most significant abandonment campaigns in the North Sea. Having cut over 150 multi-string wells in waters up to 130 meters deep, and 28 wells in a single campaign, SABRE makes light work of even composite materials such as cemented casings.

The equipment uses a mixture of air, water and abrasive garnet at up to 1,000 bar to cut through the multiple steel casings and annuli, with the abrasive jet exiting the tool at transonic speeds ensuring optimal cutting performance. The system, when teamed with other Claxton proprietary equipment, forms the backbone to the Claxton rigless abandonment spread.
