Temporary abandonment cap removal tool

Claxton's Temporary abandonment cap removal tool

Designed to complement our 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 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 our subsea well abandonment package in conjunction with our SWAT™ and low-pressure packer systems.
