Claxton Engineering Services, an Acteon company, has been awarded a contract with Statoil to supply conductor and internal centralizers to a minimum of 14 wells on the Gina Krog development, offshore Norway. The contract was finalised in Dec. 2014, and first delivery is scheduled for March 2015. Claxton is responsible for the design, fabrication, testing and installation of the units.
Vegard Dale, business development manager, Claxton, said, “Winning this order reinforces our position as the premier supplier of centralizers in the North Sea and underlines our capacity to understand new challenges and devise solutions.”
