Claxton marks milestone in conductor centralizer installation

Claxton, an Acteon company, has marked a milestone by installing more than 5000 conductor guide centralizers.

Conductor centralizers form the interface between the platform jacket and well conductor, assuring vital conductor integrity.

The company reports it supplied a range of conductor and structural centralizers to major operators since 1992. A recent major project using Claxton’s designs was the Total Martin Linge development, and Claxton says it is currently working on large orders for a number of other operators in the UK and Norway.

Martin Jolley, vice president sales and commercial, Claxton, said, “Claxton’s centralizer expertise is the result of thousands of successful installations across multiple designs and work scopes. We have supplied everything from relatively simple cellar deck models, through to complex remotely actuated designs and retrofits that extend the life of ageing assets.

“Centralizers may appear simple, but the forces imposed upon them at the critical interface between the well conductor and the platform can be severe. We effectively supply an operator’s frontline protection, correctly designing and installing centralizers to ensure a long fatigue life. Being recognised as the number one supplier to North Sea operators is a milestone we are proud of, and Claxton will continue to maintain its trusted position across all product lines.”

Claxton, working from bases in the UK, Norway, Singapore and Dubai, has provided engineering across the life of field for two and a half decades with a focus on risers, decommissioning and structures.
