Aqualis to inspect Petronas rigs in the Caspian
Petronas Carigali (Turkmenistan) has awarded Aqualis Offshore a one-year agreement to perform rig integrity inspection services for drilling programs in the Caspian Sea.
The scope includes newbuild rig acceptance surveys, acceptance trials, and final integrated endurance tests.
Aqualis will assign a multi-disciplinary team of rig inspection specialists for the campaign.
“What we essentially do is to contribute towards ensuring safe and effective operational performance of drilling rigs,” said Steven Lee, head of rig inspection services at Aqualis Offshore.
“A strong rig inspection team will help reduce risks and increase operational uptime for the assets in question.”
Previously the company supported Petronas in Southeast Asia, but this is its first job in the Caspian region.
