In recent years the industry has seen the rapid development of upstream technology to enable drilling to go deeper, more intelligently and with greater

efficiency.  The drilling operation now enjoys high levels of automation with integrated control systems being responsible for the safety, reliability and performance monitoring of everything from drilling and BOP control to dynamic positioning and power management.

 

With these advanced systems come advantages but also emerging challenges.  Due to the increasingly complex nature of new generation rig control systems, the need for effective and reliable auditing, verification of performance and safety compliance is essential.

 

Utilising highly qualified and experienced Control System engineers supplemented by training from ADC’s Virtual Academy and Original Equipment Manufacturers, ADC’s Control System division are recognised as specialists in inspecting and auditing drilling and marine-related control systems and software covering all systems from modern land rigs through to 7th Generation Ultra Deepwater Drillships.

 

With years of experience in the field, ADC’s Control Systems Inspection Division has proven to be of major advantage to clients, credited with identifying and resolving a broad range of issues prior to acceptance of new build and in service rigs and identifying major potential sources of downtime across a broad spectrum of rig types and systems.

 

Whether evaluating a new-build rig or retrofitting advanced systems into an older rig, ADC’s unique synergy of drilling experience and control system expertise is here to ensure maximum efficiency and safety whilst significantly reducing costly downtime.
