Cap removal tool Main 1

Designed to complement Claxton’s suspended well abandonment package, the innovative tool safely retrieves caps from mudline wells to enable well abandonment operations.

A rigless solution for use on mudline systems.

The Claxton temporary abandonment cap removal tool (TACRT) can be deployed from a vessel for the removal of temporary abandonment caps from mudline wells. The tool utilises a bespoke joint connection to facilitate easy make/break of extension joints without the need for torque equipment. The use of extension joints means the tool can remove caps in excess of 100ft from the top of a well.

The TACRT can be provided as a stand-alone tool but is primarily used as part of Claxton’s subsea well abandonment package in conjunction with our SWAT™ and low-pressure packer systems.
