Case Study: Implementation of CBM in Drilling Rigs

Nishanthan S, Reliability Engineer, Osborne Engineering Limited Sundaramoorthi Panneerselvam, Reliability Engineer, Technomax Middle East Engineering LLC


Implementation of CBM in Drilling rigs, Rigs which plays a vital role in the middle east market to explore their oil well and their growth. Drilling rigs which having a maximum 50 numbers of equipment per rig including twelve major critical equipment, but if any one fails which may lead to production loss of more than 50000 USD/Day and huge maintenance cost. To avoid those circumstances, we implemented and succeeded with result outcome to one of the worlds prestigious drilling company in Middle East. As per the guidelines of ISO & our previous experience, we implemented the CBM technique to achieve a best result which is not limited to Vibration, Thermography, Ultrasound and Visual inspection. And our paper will helps drilling industry to select a best technique in CBM.
