An Integrated Approach to Equipment Failure Prevention

The provision of accreditation based on the requirements of the NS Standards is one part of our strategy of support to the Oil & Gas Industry to assist them in reducing the risk of equipment failure during drilling operations.

There are three elements that are integral to this approach:

Each on their own is an important contributor to the objective of equipment failure risk reduction. Together they can create a significant barrier to failures occurring due to inappropriate, unsuitable or poorly maintained equipment being used where it is not ‘fit for purpose’.

When to use NS-1™ & NS-2™

The Oil and Gas industry is working within drilling environments not thought of as possible 10 or 20 years ago. Equipment is being used in more arduous conditions.

Therefore, when being used in these harsher conditions it needs to be made and inspected to a higher standard.  So if you are drilling Offshore; in HP/HT, UBD and other managed pressure wells; undertaking ERD Projects, or drilling in slim or super-slim holes then why risk potential equipment failures and consider adopting the NS-1™ & NS-2™ Standards.

They have been constructed from equipment failure data and are in continuous development to provide solutions to complex challenges.

This is why their new online delivery subscription service is such an advantage to the oil industry. Fully searchable and with direct support services from technical specialists - in our experience - adoption of the standards can bring significant operational savings.

As the requirement for independent certification increases, to give end users greater security in the products and services that they buy, so Fearnley International Group offer the following Quality Management Certification in order to provide increased confidence in any current quality gap between supplier and purchaser:
