Setting standards

Rig inspection services provider ADC Energy has secured its largest US land project to date


The company will deliver its services to a major US operator’s fleet in the Permian Basin. The contract, worth $300,000, is expected to take between four and six months, and is scheduled to be completed during Q1 of 2022.

As part of the work scope, ADC Energy will provide its specialized 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.

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.”
