At LR we understand that drilling wells is an expensive business, and prolonging a well program because of issues with equipment or systems adds further burden to the budget, causing cost overruns.
Ensuring that your drilling equipment, systems and unit are operable, well maintained and comply with applicable standards and regulations is key to achieving cost efficient, reliable and safe operations. We help you achieve this so you can focus on what really matters – drilling as efficiently as possible.
What we offer
Our drilling rig surveys and inspections, for both offshore and onshore rigs, provide you with an overview of the condition of the rig equipment and systems.
We help you prevent unnecessary delays before mobilising rigs, reduce non-productive down time (NPT) and diminish interruptions in the drilling schedule that could arise due to unforeseen issues such as malfunctions. Safe operation is as important as a reliable one; we ensure equipment is up to standard and complaint. Our comprehensive check list which, where applicable, references standards and regulations such as API, ASME, Norsok and Class, can be tailored to suit your individual project needs.
Rigs regularly move between various jurisdictions; we apply our global expertise to ensure your rig is compliant with local regulations and standards, enabling it to commence work as soon as it gets to a new location.
If you’re looking to select a rig for a specified well programme or even to purchase a rig, we can assess its condition as part of your due diligence, allowing you to make a more accurate, risk free decision before you commit to contract or purchase.
