A customer solicited Rus-Tec Engineering with a request to do a structural review of a Drilling Fleet located in Australia. There were over 10 rigs to be inspected that were scattered across South Australia and Queensland. This 14 day trip, with a different hotel and flight every day, was a whirl wind tour. However, we met the challenge and delivered the technical reports in a timely manner to fulfill our customer’s needs. Our industry history gave Rus-Tec a unique position on the project; having designed and worked on most of the rig fleet that needed to be inspected.
A great project overall and a nice opportunity to see previous designs at work in the field.
