Aqualis Offshore Expands Service Offering

Aqualis Offshore, a marine and offshore engineering consultancy, revealed Monday that it has expanded its service offering to include drilling rig inspections.

In a statement on its website, the company said it had built up a ‘dedicated and specialist’ rig inspection team, which will ‘utilize multi-disciplined engineers with decades of practical rig inspection experience to provide regulatory compliance and equipment operability assurance to rig owners and operators’.

“Rig moving, jack-up engineering, offshore transportation and installation, and marine warranty services already represent a large portion of our work,” David Wells, CEO of Aqualis Offshore, said in a company statement.

“Over the past few years, clients have increasingly asked us to support them with rig inspection services too. Hence we have recruited specialist personnel to lead us forward,” he added.

Under its new offering, Aqualis Offshore will provide a range of inspection services, from the development to the execution of bespoke rig inspection and acceptance programs, for drillships, semi-submersibles and jack-up rigs of all generation types.

In addition, Aqualis said its team can cover land rigs and provide more focused inspections to meet clients’ exact requirements, such as well control, dynamic positioning or integrated control management system inspections.

“We also aim to be able to support offshore drilling rig reactivation activities and rig selection consultancy. Conversely, if required, we can provide rig preservation assessments,” Wells said.
