Claxton’s Structural Centralizers for Martin Linge Development

Claxton, an Acteon company, has won a major contract to provide conductor centralizers, internal centralizers, deck covers, drill bushings, support frames and associated services for the Martin Linge development on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

The first phase of Claxton’s four-year contract with Total E&P Norge AS covers 11 wells. The project agreement was finalised in September 2013 and first delivery is scheduled June 2014. Claxton worked closely with Total to identify the most effective centralizer solution for the development. A review of riser analysis reports and further investigation led to the development of simpler and more cost-effective centralizers than had originally been anticipated, particularly those for the splash zone.

Ann Vicens, Structures Product Leader, Claxton said, “We are delighted to have secured this contract. It strengthens our relationship with Total and will clearly demonstrate how our engineering capabilities, which benefit from Claxton’s deep experience of well-conductor structural issues, can be applied in similar field developments. We focused our support on designing what Total needed rather than selling what we had, and working with Total is rewarding, as their approach to technical challenges is open and collaborative. This promotes healthy discussion and helps us in identifying the most appropriate solution.”
