Our approach to surveying
We perform independent and comprehensive rig and platform surveys to the highest known standards. We draw upon our knowledge and experience that we have gained in all aspects of oilfield services related to Quality and HSE, asset integrity, project management and similar fields.
We believe in an in depth and comprehensive approach to surveying. Rather than simply following a standard guidance checklist, we spend a great deal of time customizing every survey according to the localized situation. Just as with a DWOP, CWOP, HAZID, HAZOP, or any planning exercise, we will do our best to look into the future and predict potential weak spots in the overall integrity of the project.
It is this pro-active and investigative approach that leads to reduced incidents, as well as the goal of reducing drill times overall.
Attention to detail is very important when conducting rig and platform surveys. Whilst we do look for obvious signs of corrosion or wear, we recognize that any experienced hand can do that. We approach our surveys with a lateral view, and in as many dimensions possible, even looking into the future when considering prevailing climate, season and so on.
We think outside of the box, knowing that every important finding and action step that we uncover can save lives and divert environmental issues. When we discover a critical problem, and it gets rectified, we feel inspired that we are a force of good in the world, and that matters to us.
We also keep abreast of technology and systems, realizing that they vary over time and by location. If we discover a new piece of equipment that we are unfamiliar with, we get a copy of the manufacturers manual and know that we have a late night reading ahead of us.
It is by this level of dedication, and attention to detail that we are building an enviable name for ourselves globally. There are some things that you cannot cut costs or corners on, and rig surveys and inspections are one of these things.
These are the various types of rig and platform surveys that we can perform:
– Technical Evaluation Surveys
– Pre-Hiring Surveys
– Newbuild, Shipyard and Commissioning Surveys
– Post UWILD and Drydock Surveys and Inspections
– Mechanical, Electrical, Marine, Drilling, and Operational Surveys
– Dropped Object Surveys and Prevention Inspections
– SIMOPS (Simultanous Operations) Audits, Inspections, and Surveys for Drilling, Completions, Interventions, Construction, and Production SIMOPS readiness
