Minimizing Downtime. Maximizing Efficiency
Bureau Veritas provides a dedicated source for QA/QC services, engineering, and training with the goal of reducing the risks of equipment failure and consequential non-productive time (NPT) in drilling and completions operations.
Our QA/QC Technicians, located worldwide, perform third party inspections ensuring equipment is assembled and tested to the standards required by the customer. When Bureau Veritas Technicians ensure equipment is fit for purpose, operators see significant reduction in NPT.
The Engineers at Bureau Veritas have developed their expertise from thousands of analyses, equipping them to optimize the structural design of your drill string no matter the conditions. Their comprehensive models have been enhanced by customer feedback resulting in concise and practical recommendations validated by experience. Customers benefit from fewer downhole tool failures and unexpected trips.
Setting the Standard
Bureau Veritas established the DS-1® in 1992 to provide an industry standard for drill string inspection and design. Since its inception an industry sponsorship committee comprised of operators and service companies has guided the further development of the standard. The Standard DS-1 Fourth Edition was released in 2012 and includes detailed recommendations for drilling tubular product specification, drill stem design and operation, drill stem inspection, and drilling specialty tools.
We continue to develop the DS-1 to address additional equipment and well conditions as the industry evolves.
Bureau Veritas also provides practical training, teaching best practices in quality management with focus on drilling equipment. Instructors are well versed on the
DS-1 and how the standards can improve equipment design and reliability. Choose
