Rig Inspection Checklist | Download

Table of Contents

As we mentioned in the Rig Audit Article, rig inspection is a necessary process that shall be done from time to time. Especially after the rig moving to a new drilling location. Here we have collected drilling & workover rig inspection & maintenance checklists for onshore and offshore rig components (including jack-up rigs & according to API and Osha recommendations – Check also types of drilling rigs).

Also, please consider that various items on these checklists are shaded grey. (this is an INDICATION ONLY of items that are LESS safety-critical to check). Therefore, by default, the remaining items are the more safety-critical ones.

The major rig acceptance procedures are as follows:

  1. Prime mover’s acceptance inspection
  2. Cementing unit acceptance inspection
  3. Chock manifold acceptance pressure test
  4. Bop stack acceptance pressure & function tests
  5. Bop control system acceptance
  6. Rig floor, TDS, Drawworks acceptance (also check Top drive in drilling rig)
