“A common frustration for many people is the inability to effectively learn from lessons, and share those lessons with others so that they can hopefully be prevented from learning the same mistakes again.

One of the best methods of sharing is the provision of information so that interested people may find it via web searching.. then because they sought it out, they are hopefully enthused enough to digest and act accordingly.

That is the thought that is behind many of the Technical Bulletins that we share. They may not all be directly associated with our NS Standards or services, but they are related to equipment and industry operations that are carried out on a daily basis, on many rig sites across the globe.

Feel free to share and use the bulletins, and if you have any feedback, questions or suggestions for other topics that you think we could share and help with, get in touch.”

Hunting Equipment Management Services achieve NS Approval

NS Product Line Manager Paul Massie presents Doug Stuart and Steve Edghill from Hunting’s Equipment Management Services with two Brass Plaques for achieving Level 1 Facility Approval, for the Rental of Drilling Equipment which has been manufactured and maintained to Fearnley Procter NS-1™/NS-2™ Standards and Level 2 Process Approval, for the Application of Wear Bands on Non-magnetic Flexi Collars.

Doug Stuart, Deputy General Manager and Technical Manager, Hunting Equipment Management Services, (HEMS) explained, “the benefits of maintaining our NS-1 Approval for our fleet of Rental Equipment and Non-Mag Flexi Collar Wear Band Application, provides not only our management team confidence that we are applying the highest available industry quality standards, but also to the end-user, particularly in the UKCS where NS-1™ & NS-2™ are recognised as the minimum levels of acceptable quality. We also encourage the additional material testing and validation activities which is carried out as part of the NS approval process as it gives us confidence that our supply chain are meeting those same levels of quality that we require to provide our clients. Our NS Accreditation also reduces the need for multiple unnecessary and costly supplier audits as it provides us with an independent approval of quality which is easily recognised in our most demanding operational environment”
