Introduction
The purpose of any rig acceptance is to ensure that the rig being hired is capable ofcarrying out the Drilling Programme safely, efficiently and cost-effectively.Most operators have in-house checklists for rig acceptance.However, as with most lists, they tend to have grown with time, to the point where insome cases they are unwieldy and to execute the required rig audit in any depth couldtake longer than drilling the proposed well. It is however possible to check out anyworking rig in a day or so. Cold-stacked rigs or rigs in need of upgrade for special wellssuch as deepwater would need longer periods and are discussed separately in thischapter.Most rigs use the same basic equipment, so to get an overview of the rig the followingfactors must be considered:
Personnel – quality and turnover
Planned and effective maintenance
Inventory levels and controlClearly, the people selected to carry out rig acceptance must be very familiar with the rigtypes that they are auditing. If the operator does not have such people on the staff, thenit is very worthwhile considering using consultants for the job. If the operator has aDrilling Operations Policy Document then any rig acceptance must be done within theguidelines of this Document.
