23 May 2018 – Aqualis Offshore has been awarded a one-year Rig Inspection service agreement with Petronas Carigali (Turkmenistan) Sdn. Bhd, to conduct drilling rig integrity inspection services for its drilling programmes.
Aqualis Offshore’s rig inspection work scope includes in-depth surveys including new-build rig acceptance surveys, acceptance trials and final integrated endurance tests.
The work will be conducted by Aqualis Offshore’s dedicated team of rig inspection specialists. The team consists of multi-disciplined engineers with decades of experience to provide regulatory compliance and equipment operability assurance to rig owners and operators.
“What we essentially do is to contribute towards ensuring safe and effective operational performance of drilling rigs. A strong rig inspection team will help reduce risks and increase operational uptime for the assets in question. We look forward to supporting Petronas again,” says Steven Lee, head of rig inspection services at Aqualis Offshore, which is part of Oslo-listed energy consulting group Aqualis ASA.
Aqualis Offshore has previously supported Petronas in South East Asia, but this is the company’s first job in the Caspian region.
Aqualis Offshore’s contract party is Aqualis Offshores (UK) Ltd.
