Cooper Basin South Australia Drilling competency assessments

Drilling Operations (Onshore)

South Australian Regulators wouldn’t allow operations to commence due to competency issues with the drill crew.

We were commissioned at short notice to conduct a gap analysis on our client’s drill crews.

A training plan was developed and we mobilised to location.

After we produced a plan for the assessment process and implemented it the Regulators allowed the rig to go live and spud the well.

Surat Basin

Surat Basin Queensland competency assessments

Coal Seam Gas Drilling Operations

A client's operations were suspended by the regulators due to non-compliance of drilling competencies.

Commissioned to undertake competency assessments for multiple rigs on a large scale.

This project was a major achievement given the timeframes and pressures put upon the assessors to assess the crews’ competency which allowed the rigs to spud.
