The land rig API Std 53 compliance survey is more detailed and intrusive than the standard well control equipment survey conducted, by a mechanic, within a Full Condition Survey (FCS).
Therefore, to fully ascertain the status of compliance of a land rig to API Std 53. ModuSpec will utilise a Well Control Equipment (WCE) surveyor with a proven history of Subject Matter Expert (SME) experience in well control equipment, instead of a multi discipline mechanic / BOP surveyor.
Inspections will be conducted to API Std. 53, 5th edition Dec 2018, requirements and utilizing manufacturers’ recommended practices, national and international / regulatory rules and regulations, codes of practice, and current industry standards.
