DECOMMISSIONING TECHNOLOGY

Simpler, easier, quicker. Reducing the cost of decommissioning.

DECOMMISSIONING TECHNOLOGY

We have developed a wide range of  chemical products, designed to make decommissioning simpler, easier and quicker. We offer a range of solutions spanning the full decommissioning process, from wells through to subsea infrastructure, pipelines and topsides. You can browse some of our most popular products below...

Rigless well decommissioning

Well decommissioning is the single biggest cost faced by operators, equating to 45 % of the overall decommissioning cost. We have designed a product to help significantly reduce this cost.

This new reservoir barrier technology is called Xclude, and it provides a safe, environmentally-friendly method for creating a barrier in the reservoir.

Sealing compound for riser cutting

Our AXI-Lokk product is used by operators to seal flexible flowlines, and speed up decommissioning times.

The line is cleaned and AXI-Lokk is put in place, where it reacts to form an elastometric plug that seals the line. The line is cut through the set AXI-Lokk and the flowlines and associated structures can be removed quickly without any hydrocarbon discharge.

Pumpable buoyancy

Our pumpable buoyancy products provide controlled, adjustable lifts up to 3,000m under water. 

When pumped into a structure, they reduce an object's mass in water, making it easier for cranes, divers and ROVs to lift.
