Sparrows Group’s Singapore operation has been awarded the American Petroleum Institute (API) Specification Q2, a quality assurance certification for drilling service providers.

Sparrows Singapore awarded API Q2 certification

The firm demonstrated its quality management system met the strict criteria set out by API after being audited in October.

The award of several drilling equipment maintenance projects, worth approximately US$$7 million, in Singapore over the past year prompted the global engineering services provider to apply for the certification.

Sparrows Offshore Services (Singapore) Pte Ltd was found to be in conformance with its: maintenance of lifting and drilling equipment; management of inspection and testing services: supply of mechanical handling solutions and parts; and the provision of personnel for project management, inspection, repair, service and overhaul.

Stewart Mitchell, Sparrows’ CEO, said: “This is a significant achievement for our Singapore office and a notable step forward for our drilling equipment business globally. We decided to validate our quality management system in Singapore due to the increased demand for this service in the Asia Pacific region.

“Gaining API approval assures our customers that their drilling projects are consistently being completed to the highest standard by our skilled and competent workforce.

“We are now successfully carrying out the same work in the Middle East and have a strategic plan in place to gain API Q2 certification for our UAE and Saudi Arabia locations next.”
