As part of our decommissioning offering we will be publishing a series of exclusive thought leadership blogs throughout 2018. This channel allows us to communicate directly with our readers on challenges that may be facing the industry or wider and allows us to offer some of our ideas and provide innovative solutions. We invite you to comment, share, and be a part of the growing Claxton community. If there is a particular subject you would like us to cover, please let us know. To start the series, we thought we would provide you with Claxton’s decommissioning story so far and how our industry defining technology developments and services have defined rigless and rig-based decommissioning.
Decommissioning has become an integral part of the offshore industry over the past few years as operators seek to reduce their asset stock and remain profitable at the same time. To achieve this, it’s important that clients have a reliable and expert supply chain to rely on for guidance and support.
Responding to operator’s needs has led to the continuous investment in Claxton’s service offering. The company is now experienced in platform, subsea, rigless and vessel-based campaigns, and supports well decommissioning by providing risers, wellhead removal, conductor severance, well P&A and solutions to overcome integrity issues with platforms or ageing well infrastructure.
This blog gives an overview of three key projects, which demonstrate the capabilities of Claxton’s market leading decommissioning products, that have influenced their overall offering.
While the decline in the oil and gas industry has presented huge challenges, recognising this and accepting the market environment has enabled organisations to re-focus and look for a different, more strategic approach to define their brand and service offering.
The first steps to develop a positive brand proposition and influence growth starts with a company’s values and culture. Business owners don’t always equate an organisations values with the value of their brand. Knowing exactly what you stand for however, particularly in challenging times is critical to establishing a strong culture within your organisation.
Andy Norman, Head of Brand and Marketing, Claxton, discusses in this blog how his team have reenergised its purpose by integrating its brand values into the operations of the organisation and explains what benefits this has had.
Decommissioning has become an integral part of the offshore industry over recent years as operators seek to reduce their asset stock and remain profitable at the same time. With the ever-increasing pressure to save money, it’s important that oil companies have a reliable and expert supply chain to rely on for guidance and support.
Decommissioning, as we have seen in the case of recent North Sea projects, is set to be increasingly technically challenging, and with that, costly. From initial planning to the site clean-up, a decommissioning project can also take a significant period — potentially years to complete.
