DROPS Inspection

SIGS Provides Dropped Object inspections for various Oil & Gas land based drilling contractors across the Middle East. Our inspectors are fully DROPS certified and experienced in the use of the applicable API, regional and international standards and specifications to fulfil any rig related DROPS task.

Within the oil and gas industry, everyone knows the potential cost of a dropped object. It's not just about equipment damage and lost production. It's about life!

The problem is common to everyone in the industry, across all regions, sectors and disciplines. Our initiative is focused on preventing dropped objects, with the ultimate goal of delivering a 'second nature' dropped objects prevention strategy across our industry. SIGS shares commitment and enthusiasm for the common goal of dropped object prevention.

In addition to having a comprehensive internal DROPS training program, SIGS is a full DROPS UK member, the leading organization at the forefront of the fight to eliminate the deadly occurrence and assorted adverse consequences of Dropped Objects in and around drilling rigs.

At the end of each DROPS Inspection process a complete report register is prepared and made readly accessible to the client via our online repors management portal.
