Aberdeen Drilling Consultants (ADC), a specialist rig inspection company, has expanded its operations with a new office in Houston, Texas – winning several six figure contracts already this year.
With more than 30 years of global operator and contractor experience, the opening of ADC’s new American base highlights its continuing commitment to the international oil and gas industry and focus on its global clients. The contract wins involve ADC’s Rig Intake and Reactivation Services and can be attributed to the new capability of the company to provide local services to their clients across the Americas.
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. With these advanced systems come many advantages, but also challenges, in that reactivating them can be a time consuming and difficult task as they were never designed to be shut down.
ADC’s Rig Intake and Reactivation Services ensure advanced technology rigs that have been lying dormant during the downturn can be reactivated efficiently, safely and securely returning them ready to operate; perform as designed and in compliance with local regulatory bodies such as BSEE.
Austin Hay, President of ADC Americas, said: “The new office will allow the company to increase our presence in the Rig Inspection field throughout the US and in particular the Gulf of Mexico, enabling us to rapidly respond to, and effectively service our clients in the Americas.
“We are looking forward to continued success within the industry. We have retained and trained our staff engineers through this downturn ready for the activity level to pick up again.”
