Extend the life of your offshore platform through Unique Group's Slot Recovery


Unique Group, in partnership with Mactech, offers slot recovery services that extend production, life, and value of your offshore platforms and processing equipment. Slot recovery offers operators a way of capitalising on existing assets and is often less costly than exploration, plug, and abandonment (P&A).

With decades of slot recovery and structure decommissioning, Unique Group has devised cost-effective and streamlined solutions to challenging platform infrastructure. Our slot recovery process is supported by an extensive set of rigless conductor recovery services that have been used with successful and cost-effective results across the globe.

Unique Group also offers Conductor Removal services for your Slot Recovery or Abandonment project. We use a Diamond Wire Saw to cut the conductor off to recover conductor and install whipstock. Once divers finished installing the Diamond Wire Saw and conductors are removed, a Dual Pin Drill is used to make holes for inserting a lifting pin. Next, a Diamond Wire Saw is used to sever the conductor. The severed conductor pieces are lifted away and moved to a staging area or materials barge for transportation. Then the operation is repeated until the entire conductor sting is recovered and an empty slot is left for a new well to be drilled.

Tools include:

  • Diamond Wire Saw
  • Steel Lifting Pins
  • Dual Pin Drill
