Drilling Tools Inspection:
A full MPI and visual inspection is carried out on critical stress areas of all rotary drilling tools in accordance with API RP 8C, API RP 7G and DS1 Cat 5 requirements and recommendations.
Full inspection reports with a database are submitted at the completion of the survey, which aids tracking and use of the equipment. Most Green-edge personnel are trained on the Varco.
Drilling Tool and Top Drive Inspection courses. Drilling tool surveys are usually combined with hoisting and lifting equipment surveys, providing full coverage of all such equipment onboard.

HOIST HANDLING
 These surveys provide an accurate register and database report system of all hoisting and lifting equipment onboard a drilling unit or marine vessel - from shackles and slings to lifeboats and offshore cranes.

 All equipment is inspected to current, specific manufacturers’ guidelines and to the relevant API, BS, Euro norms in conjunction with LOLER SI 2307/1998. After inspection all equipment is marked with a colour code indicating whether it is satisfactory or defective.

 Each piece of equipment is entered into a database package, supplied by MAXDEW showing its identification number, description, safe working load, test certificate number and details of previous inspections. CD-ROMS are produced with a ‘read and find’ copy of the database, allowing

 customers to easily find the status of any piece of lifting equipment on the vessel.

 Usually drilling tool surveys are combined with those for hoisting and lifting equipment, providing full inspection coverage of all such equipment onboard.

Maxdew has developed a full internet-based reporting system for our lifting equipment and drilling and hoisting tool survey work. This allows our clients full access to review the status of all equipment on their drilling rig or marine vessel.
