Rig Reactivation

Planning a stacked rig reactivation? Get a credible, efficient and reliable drilling unit.


Rig owners face difficult decisions in today’s market when committing resources to reactivating a stacked drilling rig. The rig reactivation process can be extensive and unpredictable. We help you achieve the first crucial step in maximising your return on investment: making sure your latest drilling unit is ready to go on time and within budget.

Our rig activation services can assist you in achieving an efficient, high-quality reactivation of your Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU), jack-up rigs, coiled tubing or intervention well control equipment (IWCE). We’ll help you meet class requirements and industry expectations for the rig itself and the drilling systems.

Service breakdown

You can use our specialist team to manage your full rig reactivation or simply to support a specific phase of your project.

Reactivation Assurance

If you’re planning a rig reactivation in-house, using your own management and personnel, we can offer an Assurance Service as a third-party independent company, that will help to verify work performed and provide more credibility of the units’ ability to perform. This can help increase the marketability of the rig to potential clients.

Certification and Compliance

Depending on where the rig will next operate, you’ll need to comply with rig reactivation requirements from authorities (such as BEIS, BSEE, NOPSEMA and PSA). We provide a level of assurance that all systems and components of the MODU are inspected, tested, fit for purpose and meet compliance as per class, regulatory and industry requirements.


Having acquired WEST Engineering Services (in 2012) and ModuSpec (2008), we offer the world's most comprehensive suite of technical services to owners and operators of drilling rigs, especially when it comes to rig reactivation. We’re proud of our reputation for trusted technical excellence and elevating industry safety, having inspected over 80% of the world’s offshore oil rigs.
