ADC Energy has bagged its largest US onshore project to date to deliver rig inspection services for a major operator’s fleet in the Permian Basin.

Worth around £225,000, the contract is scheduled to get underway in Q1 of 2022 and is expected to run for between four and six months.

Under the terms of the deal ADC Energy, of Aberdeen, will provide its integrated rig inspection services – including rig condition and dropped object inspections – to the unnamed operator’s fleet, consisting of 20 drilling assets.

The company will be responsible for identifying non-conformities with industry and original equipment manufacturer standards, such as the American Petroleum Institute.

It will also work closely with operators and drilling contractors to prioritise and address any irregularities that crop up.

ADC Energy’s team in the US will provide ad hoc onsite support and act as the technical focal point for the duration of the contract.

Headquartered in Aberdeen, ADC Energy also has offices in Houston, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

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.”
