ADC have seen a notable increase in enquiries concerned with the selection and reactivation of cold and warm stacked rigs, in particular the immensely sophisticated and highly automated 5th, 6th and 7th Gen rigs. Never before stacked or intended to be switched off (unlike their forebears), there is real concern about the correct procedures required to bring these high-spec rigs back to life. With our industry bearing the brunt of cost reduction and trying to recover, the last thing overstretched drilling and safety departments need right now is the additional workload of managing a rig's re-emergence into their active fleet with all the associated unknowns.
Walter Knur, Snr. VP
“It’s a unique never-before-seen problem that the industry faces, and one requiring an equally unique solution,” commented Walter Knur, Snr. VP of ADC Rig Inspection Americas Corp. “The specialist RIG INTAKE MANAGEMENT SERVICES provided by ADC, in my view, are currently the only services available worldwide comprehensive enough to get these rigs operationally ready and fit for purpose.”
“Over 30 years of Operator and Contractor experience and industry leading Rig Inspection innovation, contributes to and informs our Rig Intake Management Services. Designed to support internal drilling departments or provide independent ‘standalone’ management services, our expert teams of OEM and operationally trained oilfield professionals, deliver the assurance needed to execute drilling programs with confidence.”
Walter continued, “From assisting the rig screening process, developing rig selection inspection checklists and conducting rig selection inspections, to developing bespoke rig acceptance standards, undertaking comprehensive condition and acceptance inspections and monitoring the close out of non-conformances, our Rig Intake Management Services are arguably your most valuable asset when chartering or contracting complex automated drilling rigs, whether stacked or not.
