Claxton, an Acteon company, has been awarded a contract with Statoil to provide ‘rigless recovery’ of seven abandoned wells on the Huldra platform, located in the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The contract was finalized in July 2016, and work is scheduled to start in December 2016 with the project due for completion within 21 days.
Claxton is responsible for a full scope of decommissioning work including project planning, severance, and full multiple string recovery.
Laura Claxton, managing director, Claxton, said, “Being awarded this contract with Statoil reinforces our leading position in the decommissioning market and demonstrates that clients value our experience, strategic technical approach and capabilities.”
Conductor and casing severance for the Huldra project will be performed using the Claxton recovery tower and its abrasive cutting system ‘SABRE’.
