About Odfjell Rig Inspection Services


Rig Inspection Services is our specialist Survey & Inspection unit based in Aberdeen Scotland with strategically placed branches worldwide.

Rig Inspection Services is our specialist Survey & Inspection unit based in Aberdeen Scotland with strategically placed branches worldwide. This unit’s offering spans Rig Condition Surveys, traditional and advanced NDT services, and mechanical and electrical Derrick Services.

Rig Condition Surveys are performed by professional surveyors who can draw from our company’s experience of over 40 years of operating and maintaining mobile drilling units, in all environments, worldwide. Our surveyors, and their support organisation, bring together a unique breadth and depth of investigative knowledge from not only mobile drilling operations and maintenance, but also from new build projects, yard stay projects and classification projects. Such a wealth of in-house expertise in drilling, subsea, well control, propulsion and support systems allows us to produce accurate reports of great value to our clients.

Within NDT, our pool of experienced, qualified and trustworthy technicians, provide a comprehensive rope access based inspection and certification service. This service covers annual routines such as Derrick Inspection, Dropped Object Prevention and Load path inspections, to six and twelve monthly Lifting Equipment examinations and Drilling Equipment NDT, through to SPS and 5 Yearly Classification Inspection projects. Additional expertise within Hose Management and ATEX Inspections allows us to deliver work scopes individually, or as multi-disciplined campaigns.

 Our Derrick Services capability covers a wide range of rope access based mechanical trades to support offshore maintenance and engineering tasks throughout the drilling package.  Covering all mechanical and electrical trades, and specialising particularly in non-crane assisted rigging and lifting, these services can be provided individually as a quick response mitigation of down time or, as a planned and work packed component of a yard stay, rig re-activation or decommissioning project.

Underpinning all of our services is our management’s passion to provide customer satisfaction by delivering client needs in a safe, professional and reliable manner.
