Rig Inspection

Silver City requested Horizon to complete a compliance and condition inspection of their newly reconditioned Rig 34 to ensure it was fit for purpose for work in the hydrocarbon drilling industry in Australia.

Client Challenge:

Silver City requested Horizon to complete an inspection of Rig 34 to ensure compliance for operations in Australia. Horizon’s report was to be used to confirm compliance as part of tendering processes.


The rig was inspected following reconditioning and testing. The inspection found that the rig and reconditioning were of a high standard. A small number of issues were found which were required to be addressed. Horizon’s surveyors and technical team worked with Silver City to ensure that these issues were addressed and the rig was ready for mobilisation as required.


Horizon technical staff and Silver City staff worked together in partnership to ensure the rig was fit for purpose and a compliance report was available for potential clients.

Why work with Horizon
