Our senior technical team at Applus+ in Indonesia completed the Rig SIT and Endurance Test on a Jack-Up Rig for one of the biggest oil operator in East Kalimantan Offshore. Despite the pandemic, the tests were done less than 10 (ten) days duration with additional days of Quarantine prior to go offshore based on Client’s CV19 Protocols.
Rig SIT or known as an “Integrated Acceptance Test” (IAT) serves to simulate realistic drilling operations and demonstrate the crew’s competency in operating drilling and marine equipment. Endurance Test performed to ensure the main equipment of the rig is ready for drilling operation.
During the project, we performed a Full Condition Survey prior to the tests to audit and verify all finding from previous Rig Inspection has been in Close status by the rig operator.
The tests done in March 2021 with zero injury and incident. The report generated from the tests submitted to Client within less than 1 (one) month and the report also will be used as reference for the next drilling campaign.
For this tests campaign, the challenge of personnel movement and mobilization has been successfully overcome by the assist of Client’s Covid-19 Protocol whereas they provide the Quarantine logistic and relevant measurement before the Applus+ Inspector goes offshore. After the Quarantine, Client facilitating Applus+ Inspector for Covid-19 Test before they are clear to go offshore.
