Fearnley Procter Activities at GOTECH-2019

Non-productive-time Solutions @ Stand F10

Of course it is always better to prevent Non-Productive Time (NPT) before it happens … or the need to find out why it happened by carrying out a Failure Investigation?

Fearnley International do both – and want to share with you how, through some introductory discussion sessions at this years GOTECH 2019 Trade Show

Our Engineering Team through Failure Investigations and Equipment Strip-downs continue to identify the Root Causes as to why Equipment Failures occur, whether these lead to Non-Productive Time caused by Wash-outs and Twist-Offs, or just to Poor Performance and Invisible Lost Time (ILT).

And our QAQC team – along with the Technical Specialist Group and our Quality Assurance Advisors – act as the ‘eyes and ears’ of Drilling Teams to prevent these failures from occurring in the first place – or re-occurring.

SO – As it is one of Fearnley International’s main objectives to share that information with end-users; in order to help make drilling projects finish on time; and on budget – through the provision of Non-productive-time Solutions – we are running short sessions of 20 minutes to give you a taster of how we manage that.

Topics: The following sessions can be conducted in small numbers 1 or 2 people. 

Each topic has a reservation link so that you can choose when you want to come, just press it to go to the Doodle calendar. Or email Calum PhillipsKevin Fearnley Jr or Paul Youdan.

1. API Q1 Q2 – Introduction Awareness Session.  A Senior Quality Management Auditor will guide you through the challenges that the introduction of this API specification and the benefits of its adoption to the prevention of NPT and ILT can bring. Plus the first steps in adopting it. Reserve Time
2. ISO 9001:2015 – As a registered Certification company we can explain how ISO differs from API Q1 and Q2 and which standard you should hold. Not all service companies in the Oil & Gas industry need to have the API Q12 standard. Reserve Time
3. Drilling Operations – Equipment Failure Investigation – How to Organise One.  It is traumatic enough when a Drilling Project undergoes an Equipment Failure that requires a Failure Investigation to be carried out. There are some key do’s and don’ts. This session will take you through what they are and how to prepare the damaged equipment, photographs and reports to ensure as cost effective and as successful a conclusion as quickly as possible is achieved, to find out why the failure occurred and how to prevent it happening again. Reserve Time
4. Drilling Operations – Equipment Failure Investigation and Equipment Strip-downs – What they can tell you.  Going into a Failure Investigation or Equipment Strip-down knowing what results you should expect; which tests should be carried out: how they should be presented; and how those results may affect your drilling operation – will lead to you and your drilling team’s better understanding of the best way forward. Reserve Time
5. QAQC – How does a Quality Assurance Advisor improve drilling efficiency and minimise failures.  Over the last few years we have found that most drilling teams lack an experienced oversight of the QAQC process – for a number of reasons. An Assurance Advisor will be conducting discussion sessions on the benefits of how these personnel can make a greater difference to your drilling operation than QAQC alone. Reserve Time

Also on our stand this year we will be:

Kevin Fearnley – CEO and Chairman of the Technical Support Group

Calum Phillips – Global Business Development Manager

Rakesh Chaudhuri – Operations Supervisor – Middle East & North Africa

Alex Sanders – Senior Auditor for ISO 9001:2015

Sixteen10 ‘Mike Clark’ Charity Golf Day

Fearnley International Group Ltd are pleased to announce their Sponsorship of this very worthy cause on November 1st. The DHL Swing against Cancer Golf Series was born out of the Mark Clark Golf Day; a day where the life of a good friend to many and UAE resident who passed away with cancer aged 30 years old. Mike passed away on the 16th October 2012 and this is where the name Sixteen10 comes from.
 
Having lost my sister Sharon to cancer who was only 32 years old when she passed, this is a cause that is very close to my heart. 
 
Now in it’s 6th year, the Mike Clark Golf Day is once again being held at Jumeriah Golf Estates, where Fearnley International Group holds its Corporate Membership and I have been fortunate enough to move myself and my family to this great residential area this year, after some 10 years of us living here in Dubai. 
 
This year’s celebrity line up includes former England footballer Matt Le Tissier, England Cricketer Ian Bell and former Liverpool and England striker Robbie Fowler.
 
Good luck to the Fearnley International Group (and The Visiting Tailor) 4 ball and I look forward to hosting our table for the evening and meeting many other guests during the night.

Fearnley Procter takes Non-Productive-Time Solutions Message to China

 
Our Fearnley Procter team attended the CIPPE in Beijing last month as part of the Scottish Development International Trade Mission’s, Scottish Pavilion.
 
The show was an opportunity to continue our discussions with FP’s current clients, who have benefitted from our NS Accreditation Programme and Specialist Drilling and Completions QA/QC Services, as well as to meet new ones; either wanting to hear more about how we reduce NPT or on the International Stamp of Approval for products that the NS Accreditation Programme can bring.
 
Throughout the duration of the show Fearnley Procter met with several key players in the Chinese Oil & Gas market – with significant interest shown in NS Accreditation and Training as well as for our specialised Drilling and Completions QAQC Services. Ongoing support of their needs will continue through our Country Manager, Mingbai Xu, and his team from FP China’s base in Beijing.
 
Fearnley Procter is aiming to work with these new contacts to build on the strong foundations set by our operations in China over the past 10 years, and increase our contribution to this rapidly expanding market.
 
It was a great chance to increase awareness of how our Solutions can assist Operators reduce their Non-productive-time during drilling and completions operations.
 
Once again, Fearnley Procter would like to thank Scottish Development International and their team for arranging the visit to China and for their considerable efforts to make it such a big success.
