The significant contract, which is worth US$$300 000 (£225 000), is expected to take between four and six months and is scheduled to be completed in 1Q22. As part of the workscope, ADC Energy will provide its specialised integrated rig inspection services, including rig condition and dropped object inspections, to the operator's fleet, consisting of 20 drilling assets.
The company will identify non-conformances per industry and original equipment manufacturer standards such as American Petroleum Institute, while working closely with operators and drilling contractors to prioritise and address non-conformances.
ADC’s experienced personnel in the Americas will provide ad hoc onsite support and act as the technical focal point for the duration of the rig contract.
Kit Trahan, VP Americas at ADC Energy said: “This is the largest US land project we have been awarded since entering the US market in 2018 and it is a testament to our technical expertise and our clients’ trust in our services. We have supported this operator throughout the history of our company, working closely with its rig teams to collaborate across complex onshore and offshore projects in the Americas.
“We are seeing an increase in land rig condition and dropped object inspections in the current US onshore market recovery. As the energy industry continues to focus on gaining greater efficiencies, our expertise is ideally placed to support E&P companies’ demands, ensuring assets continue to operate safer, cleaner, and more efficiently.”
