Claxton Engineering Services Ltd, an Acteon company, has been awarded a contract worth in excess of £1 million by leading North American natural gas producer EnCana Corporation.

Claxton will be supplying subsea risers, interface connections and personnel for drilling and completions operations for five wells on a high-pressure natural gas platform, set in depths of 44 meters, 175 km offshore Nova Scotia, in the Deep Panuke field.

During Q2, 2009, the equipment will be shipped to Halifax, where Claxton will prepare it for operations before it is taken offshore. The project is being conducted from a Rowan Gorilla-class jackup rig and drilling is scheduled to commence in Q3 of 2009, with Claxton engineers on hand to help run and pull the riser. It is expected that the project will be producing by 2010. Sister Acteon company, 2H Offshore, will be providing riser analysis throughout the operation.

Laura Claxton, managing director, Claxton Engineering Services, said, "This is a long-term, high-value contract to be conducted offshore Nova Scotia. This contract marks Claxton’s entrance to the North American sector and we have been selected for this because Claxton can provide a high-quality and best value full riser supply service."
