SGS Expansion of Drill Equipment Inspection Services in Europe with New Partnership

SGS is expanding its upstream service offering in Europe and has entered into a new partnership with Netherlands-based Drilling Service Center.
April 20, 2015 - PRLog -- SGS is continuously expanding its upstream service offering in Europe and has entered into a new partnership with the Netherlands-based Drilling Service Center, strategically located in Middenmeer, to offer comprehensive Drill Equipment Inspection (DEI) services (

Through the partnership, SGS will now combine the Drilling Service Center’s expert cleaning, repair and equipment conservation offering, with its own renowned independent inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT) services (, conducted with specialized ultrasonic inspection tools according to NS2.

Pieter van Moerkerk from SGS said: “Drilling clients hire drill equipment or purchase the equipment for drilling activities in the North Sea. When used once, the equipment needs to be inspected. The Drilling Service Center in Middenmeer provided all the services needed for reuse, maintenance and overhaul of drilling equipment. The only missing part of the puzzle was SGS’s independent drill equipment inspection services. As a result, the partnership between SGS and Drilling Service Center provides a truly unique and comprehensive offering to the upstream sector across Europe.”

In addition to providing services on site in Middenmeer, the partnership will also use mobile facilities to provide services where the equipment is used. As a result, clients will no longer need to arrange transportation of their equipment to a testing site.
