Independent 3rd Party Services
Shear Verification & Calculations
Verification of shearing capabilities is a requirement by BSEE to provide an independent third-party verification demonstrating the Blind Shear Rams (BSR) are capable of shearing all drill pipe in the hole under Maximum Anticipated Surface Pressure (MASP), supported with actual shear test reports and pressure testing documentation.
Our Professional Engineering (PE) staff has experience in both mechanical and electrical subsea systems and is dedicated to engineering first principles. Our PEs perform a careful review of your BOP’s shearing capabilities as part of our Shear Verification service.
BOP Equipment Verifications
Equipment verification under the new rule are a requirement for surface and subsea BOPs. Our no-frills verification process ensures your BOP system meets the requirements of API STD 53, Spec 16A, Spec 16C, and Spec 16D.
We pride ourselves on verifying equipment to the requirements of the regulation, and are careful to avoid unnecessary inspection requirements and paperwork that are extraneous under the new regulation.
Intervention Equipment Verifications
5-Year Maintenance Witnessing
The updated Well Control regulations require that any teardown & inspection that fulfills a 5-year maintenance requirement requires a 3rd party to witness and report on the process.
Our technical staff is here to ensure your 5-year maintenance reporting complies with the law by providing full 5-year maintenance witnessing and reporting services.
In-Operation Repair Reporting
Mechanical Integrity Assessments
While the requirement of a Mechanical Integrity Assessment (MIA) is postponed until the implementation of BAVOs, waiting until the last minute to get these assessments completed could negatively impact the marketability of your fleet.
IOTC Solutions is ready to assist you with the MIA process and we are diligently working with drilling contractors to establish the necessary MIA protocols.
