Rig inspection

We are the leading provider of drilling integrity, risk management and inspection services to the oil & gas sector. Following our acquisition of WEST Engineering Services and the ModuSpec Group, in 2012 and 2008 respectively, we offer the world's most comprehensive suite of technical services to owners and operators of offshore drilling rigs. Our world class services and support is recognised globally, with our reputation for technical excellence, safety and trust speaking for itself, having inspected over 80% of the world’s offshore oil rigs.

Our land and offshore rig and equipment inspection services help you reduce equipment failures and minimise downtime, preventing unnecessary delays before mobilising rigs, interruption due to malfunction of equipment, controls and systems and costly non-productive time (NPT). We also increase savings by reducing inspection costs by up to 50% and improve the reliability, safety and environmental impacts of drilling programs.

Our rig assurance services can be applied to new-built, established and refurbished land and offshore rigs and cover capital and safety critical drilling equipment, mud systems, blow out preventers (BOP) and well control equipment, electrical equipment and systems, power plant, safety equipment and the maintenance and spare parts system. We are also experts in reactivating rigs that have been non-operational and sat idle or warm-stacked as well as the reactivation of drilling packages prior to decommissioning.
