Subsea Operational Excellence
Can downtime be eliminated? YES, if your focus is in the right place!
When you research “infant mortality” and study premature BOP downtime incidents to the level of detail that we do, what you find out is that downtime is caused by one of the following major contributors:
- Poor design
- Poor quality manufacture
- Incorrect installation
- Incorrect commissioning
- Incorrect operation
- Unnecessary maintenance
- Excessively invasive maintenance
- Bad workmanship
This is why we focus on the three major areas of subsea operations which can guarantee a reduction of downtime and improvement in operational performance.
Manufacturing and Assembly
Downtime that is contributed to the OEMs can be prevented utilizing our comprehensive QA/QC programs. Our certified inspectors work along side the OEMs to ensure that your equipment is manufactured and installed as per the design criteria and meets industry standards.
Commissioning and FAT/SIT
The second phase of eliminating downtime is to ensure that all the equipment is commissioned correctly. Our team of Subsea SMEs work directly with your crews to verify that all of your equipment is 100% functional and fit for service prior to the start of your operations.
Operations and Maintenance
When it comes to operations and maintenance ensuring that crews are fully competent to perform their duties is a priority. Our surveyors work hand in hand with the rig crews to ensure that all the required maintenance is being completed and that it’s validated.
