Conductor recovery tower

Published:  27 September, 2016

Claxton, an Acteon company, has announced it has successfully introduced the latest modular versions of its conductor recovery tower and SABRE abrasive cutting system to increase efficiency and flexibility in decommissioning and late life projects.

First developed in 1999, Claxton says SABRE has proven to be an invaluable industry tool and has been successfully used in some of the world’s most significant abandonment campaigns and its abrasive jet exits the tool at transonic speeds – making light work of even composite materials such as cemented casings.

The company says using a jet of naturally occurring cutting components (garnet, water and air), SABRE has a low environmental impact and the system can be deployed from various vessel types or platforms, allowing the simultaneous abrasive cutting of multiple well casings without impacting adjacent infrastructure.

Claxton says the latest version is fully NORSOK Z-015 compliant, has a reduced system footprint and is modular in design, making it be adaptable to a wider range of applications and deck layouts and thus minimising complexity. Its cutting manipulators suit all standard casing sizes down to 6-5/8”; it can operate at pressures of up to 20,000 psi and includes a packer system to improve cutting performance.
