See the condition of your equipment and systems. Our drilling rig surveys and inspections help you safely reduce downtime, failure and cost.
Prolonging a well programme because of issues with equipment or systems adds an extra burden to the budget, causing cost overruns. To make sure your drilling equipment and campaign run smoothly and safely, we help you avoid failure and mitigate factors that result in non-productive time (NPT).
Key to our support – and your cost efficient, reliable and safe operations – is ensuring that your drilling equipment, systems and unit are operable, well maintained and meet applicable standards and regulations. That’s why our rig survey and rig inspection solutions are tailored to your individual project needs.
Whether you’re a drilling contractor or an oil and gas operator, we help prevent unnecessary delays before mobilising rigs. We have a strong track record in helping our clients globally to diminish interruptions in their drilling schedule due to unforeseen issues, such as malfunctions.
Our rig surveys and rig inspections for offshore and onshore drilling rigs are conducted in person or delivered remotely in real time (using our SecondSight™ technology). Our clients benefit from a clear overview of the condition of their rig equipment and systems.
Our rig surveys include:
- full rig condition surveys
- selection surveys
- compliance surveys
- value assessments
- acceptance surveys
- dropped-objects surveys
- critical equipment surveys.
Safe operation is as important as a reliable one, so we ensure equipment is up to standard and compliant. Where applicable, our comprehensive checklist references leading standards and regulations (such as API, ASME, Norsok and the US Code of Federal Regulations or CFR).
If you’re looking to select a rig for a specified well programme, or purchase a rig, we can assess its condition as part of your due diligence. You’ll be able to make an accurate, risk-free decision before you commit to a contract or purchase.
