Claxton Repairs Offshore Rig — Quickly
Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Claxton Engineering Services Ltd, an Acteon company, successfully responded to an urgent call to mend a rig diverter’s connection by providing a 30” dual seal overshot, a 30” casing cutter and personnel to oversee operations and requirements within 48 hours.

During this time period, Claxton modified and dispatched the necessary equipment for its client. Under normal circumstances, this equipment is ordered a month in advance by the drilling contractor during well planning.

The connection to the rig diverter prohibited the rig from operating. Claxton modified the overshot by cutting it to the precise size and welded the connection on top creating a pressure seal.

Additionally, Claxton supplied cold-cutting equipment to ensure the space-out was correct for the overshot. The wellhead fit seamlessly after the drilling and casing operations had been completed which will provide continuous flow.
