RIG AND RIGLESS DECOMMISSIONING SERVICES
Operators are now under increasing pressure to reduce costsand the focus on decommissioning is that much greater. However, the scale of cost reduction required means lookingbeyond immediate short-term efficiencies and thinking morestrategically of ways to reduce costs in the long term.
Claxtons growing catalogue of success across the life of field, includingbeing involved in many of the original drilling projects in the North Seahas enabled us to provide a decommissioning capability that oftenexceeds those of much larger competitors.
Our well abandonment experience stretches back over 20 years and weperformed the worlds first rigless platform well abandonment campaignon the Esmond, Forbes and Gordon field in 1995.
With Claxtons extensive knowledge and experiences of welldecommissioning projects around the world, we define our uniqueoffering as one that considers best practice that can be applied atdifferent stages of the decommissioning process. We are also able todraw from interconnected disciplines from across the Acteon group ofcompanies and third party partnerships for specialist analysis work andmanufacturing/machining where required. This enables us to define afull service offering for projects on a case by case basis.
Claxton has grown significantly over the years in order to respond to ourclients operating needs. The companys integration strategy means wecan offer comprehensive decommissioning packages to our clients forthe following applications:
Platform Wells (Rigless, Rig-based or combined SIMOPS) Subsea Wells Casing Recovery (Drilling Support Operations).
As well as describing some of the decommissioning projects Claxtonhave been involved in, this guide will give you a summary of theprocesses and procedures we can offer to abandon your wells reliably,successfully and safely.
