World Oil Awards - Claxton Engineering Runner Up

Last month, Claxton were awarded the prize of runner up at the World Oil Awards in Houston.

 
PRLog - Nov. 22, 2012 - GREAT YARMOUTH, U.K. -- The World Oil Awards are in their 11th year and the theme for 2012 was “innovations from the future”.  The awards programme provides an opportunity to spotlight accomplishments and leading innovations achieved from 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012.  In addition, the World Oil Awards serve as a contributor to the future of the oil and gas industry by donating to deserving universities with established petroleum departments.

Claxton were nominated in the Health, Safety, and Environment / Sustainable Development Offshore Award category for the pioneering subsea drilling and pinning machine, developed in conjunction with Acteon sister company Mirage Machines.

The awards were held at The Houstonian Hotel on 18th October 2012, where a table was hosted by Rowan Patterson, Claxton’s Business Development Director, with handpicked clients in attendance.  Mr Patterson said “There were hundreds of applications; we were honoured to be a finalist in what was a very prestigious event, let alone runner up in our category.”

The subsea drilling and pinning machine, designed to aid the recovery of conductors and casing strings without the need for diver intervention, was chosen as a finalist and then runner up in its category due to its numerous advantages over traditional methods. Not only does it save time and money, but also offers many safety benefits.

The Claxton drilling and pinning system (http://www.claxtonengineering.com/Products/Platform-Slot-...) provides an efficient method for securing multiple casing strings for safe recovery operations. This can be provided as part of a package that includes rapid cut bandsaws for severance and hydraulic jacking systems for recovery. It enables simultaneous retrieval of multiple casing strings (http://www.claxtonengineering.com/Products/Product/Conduc...), and is designed to work independently of rig operations.

As a cold work technique it is especially suited to abandonment operations where adjacent wells may still be in production. Features of Claxton’s (http://www.claxtonengineering.com/Get-to-Know-Us/Why-Choo...) drilling and pinning portfolio include:

·   Single drilling units available for applications where space is restricted
·   Double drilling units available for simultaneous boring of both sides of the conductor and casings
·   Modular design with multiple handling points for ease of installation and operation
·   All units certified for zone II applications
·   Conductor end caps provided to mitigate dropped object potential

Crucially, when compared to conventional methods, using Claxton’s system to drill, pin and recover the conductor means less deck space is required for the recovered casings – meaning disposal logistics are simplified and costs reduced.

Claxton were joined on the World Oil awards finalist list by Acteon sister company Pulse. Pulse, nominated for their innovative DrilllAssure Software Modules, also attended the awards.
