Maintenance of all critical equipment used to control well pressure during drilling, well testing, completion, workover, and well intervention activities should be subject to a certification scheme including independent verification, typically through a five-year renew cycle.
DNV GL's recommended practice (RP), DNVGL-RP-E101, presents a risk based methodology for recertification of well control equipment. The DNV GL RP gives guidelines for legislations in Norway and the US, but the generic processes may be adapted to other legislations as well.
DNV GL provides: • Design verification/ certification • Recertification • Welding qualification and fabrication follow-up • Fabrication survey and QA/QC
DNV GL has applied DNVGL-RP-E101 successfully to more than 500 projects in the past decade.
