Claxton Engineering in Great Yarmouth has completed its involvement in the abandonment of two wells on the Horne and Wren Platform in the Southern North Sea.

Completed within 18 days in July, Claxton was responsible for the tubing cut verification, tubing recovery, sub-mudline abrasive conductor severance, conductor cut verification and the subsequent multi-string recovery from both wells.

Project engineer Rob Horton said: “The multi-string severance was performed from a jack-up lift barge (JULB) for this project, allowing significant cost savings for the client against the use of a rig. The Horne and Wren platform has a small 8m x 8m weather deck footprint, creating a space challenge which we managed to overcome.”

Rigless platform well abandonment is just one of the many services Claxton offers to reduce the costs of decommissioning projects.

Claxton, an Acteon company, is the leading supplier of engineering and services for shallow-water, jackup-depth markets.
