Lloyd's Register's Rig inspection workshop for land rigs teaches the inspection and maintenance procedures required to ensure equipment integrity on land rigs. Candidates learn to implement the relevant standards and understand industry requirements so that they can verify the condition of a rig’s equipment and improve safety, thus reducing the number of accidents and protecting the asset.
You will learn to
independently carry out a basic (visual)rig inspection
describe the main inspection criteria for major equipment
identify major items that have an impact on the safety and operation of a rig
recognise the indicators of the overall condition of a drilling rig
list the relevant standards (such as American Petroleum Institute - API) and their implications for drilling equipment
understand the basics of ATEX (Equipment for potentially explosive atmospheres) certified electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres installed in hazardous areas
evaluate basic maintenance and inspection procedures on the rig to identify compliance with good working practices and industry standards
understand the basics of well control equipment operation
This workshop deals with the most common equipment deficiencies and recurring problems found over the course of more than 5,000 drilling rig surveys performed by Lloyd's Register. The workshop describes and explains the working principles of major drilling equipment using detailed examples from our technical inspection database.
|Diesel engines, air compressors, eddy current brake and electrical safety in hazardous areas|
|Cranes, general safety and pollution control|
|Well control equipment:
|BOP hydraulic power unit (HPU) part 1 and 2 Final exam (multiple choice questions)|
The Rig inspection workshop consists of three days of interactive classroom sessions with time for group participation and discussion.
Additionally, we provide the candidates with the following:
a checklist format for major equipment to assist with correct maintenance and inspections
multiple examples of good and bad practices, including photos
presentation of improvements and new designs of drilling equipment
further explanation of the workshop manual
Your future development
Upon successful completion of the RIW for Land Rigs, candidates receive a certificate of completion. In the case of a final exam score below 70%, candidates receive a certificate of attendance.
Attendees who have completed the Rig inspection workshop and would like to expand their knowledge are encouraged to attend other training academy courses and training programs.
