THE MAJOR CONCERN within the rig community is downtime, its length, and how it’s managed. Excessive downtime brings economic concerns, whilst restricted downtime impacts on HSE.

What is abundantly obvious is that all activities undertaken during the downtime window need to be efficient and effective, to achieve maximum results within the smallest time frame. It is because of this fundamental requirement, that all ADC Rig Inspections utilise the unique TRAMS3 rapid reporting system as the vehicle by which all inspections are conducted and completed.

Written by seasoned oilfield professionals and administered by a dedicated development team, one of the Academy's key objectives is to create learning which feels industry authentic, as if the rig’s OIM was alongside imparting his first-hand knowledge and years of experience, in an easy to understand language and style.
