Acteon's Claxton has signed a collaboration agreement with Norwegian-based supplier Seabed Solutions to "add value" to decommissioning projects, and assist operators in meeting their obligation to return subsea sites to their natural state.

"The partnership simplifies procurement, increases project execution efficiency and reduces costs for infrastructure owners by offering a wider range of dredging, excavation, cutting and decommissioning equipment and services through one contract, a single interface and by using a combined offshore crew," Claxton said.

Claxton, part of Acteon’s Energy Services division, and Seabed Solutions have extensive subsea experience, respectively. 

Claxton has had an operational presence in Norway for over nine years and expanded its base in 2019 to meet industry demand. Seabed Solutions was established in 2015 by a management team that has decades of experience leading the Norwegian seabed intervention market.

“As more and more oil and gas installations are getting close to the end of their economic and productive life, the demand for decommissioning services increases. This partnership means that the owners of the outdated installations can get the entire scope of decommissioning services on the same contract,” says Christian Aas, Seabed Solutions Managing Director.

“Claxton is excited about the partnership, which will allow us to explore synergies to enhance our client offerings and methodologies to drive growth,” adds Nick Marriott, Claxton General Manager, Norway. “Offering integrated services through one contract and a single interface, and with collegial crew use, will help to increase procurement and project execution efficiency.”
