At LR, we understand that new and emerging standards can be difficult to decipher, however regulatory regimes must be abided by. We also appreciate that today’s sophisticated drilling rigs have increased the potential for damage and downtime from problems in the electronic systems.
Our verification services ensure you are compliant with the necessary international rules, regulations and policies, while helping you minimise the time and effort needed to clear these hurdles.
What we offer
New standards reflect a general trend toward increased regulation of drilling programs worldwide. In jurisdictions where the standards are not clearly defined, we work with you to apply the appropriate regulatory standards, your company policies and industry best practices.
Our best-in-class approach for verifications combines survey services that cover both blow out preventers (BOPs) and Systems and Controls (S&C). These are customised for your rig, to check your BOP hardware and related systems for proper operation, maintenance and parts, per regulations.
We also provide re-verification services to ensure that any modifications or issues occurring since last verification do not compromise the design and operation of the BOP.
Using shear test reports combined with calculated data, we assess if your blind-shear rams will shear the drill pipe for a specific well.
We provide independent third-party verification that the BOP will operate as originally designed, and that any modifications or upgrades done after delivery do not compromise its design and operation.
BOP compatibility verification
Verification that a well using a sub-sea BOP (normally means floating rigs) in U.S. offshore waters is right for your rig and works as expected.
