InTouch oil rig inspection processes are customized to precisely cover the key points of every type of oil rig available on today’s market. InTouch oil rig inspection protocols include:

Visual Inspections

  • Visual inspections are performed to ensure there is no leakage or corrosion on the oil rig
  • Inspect to ensure the oil rig load conditions and design specifications are conforming to manufacturing requirements.
  • Ensure all equipment conforms to the specifications listed by NACE for stress cracking on oilfield equipment

Mechanical Inspections

  • Strength Tests are performed on the platforms, hoists and other oil rig equipment to ensure they conform to International standards.
  • Excessive Load Tests are performed on the platforms and hoist equipment manufactured for oil rigs.

Packaging Inspections

  • Check installation guides and use and instruction for completeness, readability, clarity of instruction, print quality, languages, etc.
  • Check packaging materials by comparing against approved samples and specifications.
  • Inspect necessary packaging marks including model, quantity per packaging, name and place of business of distributor, country of origin, logos and marks from standards organizations, and stacking and handling marks.
  • Check the safety markings on oil rigs parts for size, color, classification

Intouch includes a few of following the well-known quality control standards in developing oil rig inspection protocols:

American Petroleum Institute 8B describes the protocols for inspecting, maintaining, repairing, and re-manufacturing of hoisting equipment.

American Petroleum Institute 9A describes the protocols for the different types of wire ropes, torpedo lines, galvanized guy wires, mooring wire ropes, and well-measuring wires for offshore structures.

American Petroleum Institute 9B describes the protocols and specifications for the design, construction, evaluation, sizes, and applications of wire ropes intended for oil field applications.
