When pile anchors are being used in a drilling operation, the performance of this equipment must be constantly monitored and the analyzed in order to maximize productivity. This anchor analysis should be conducted regularly to ensure that any potential problems are identified early so that the operation has plenty of time to address these issues and prevent serious accidents from occurring. Stewart Technology Associates continues to be one of the most respected names in the offshore drilling industry and can be contacted to consult on the analysis of these offshore structures.
Since being founded in 1986, STA has helped clients improve all areas of their operation. These clients of STA include government agencies and large scale drilling contractors so the firm has proven they can serve a wide range of organizations. The experienced team at STA consists of technicians with backgrounds in all aspects of marine drilling so they will be able to consult on not just an anchor analysis but can oversee the same process for other structures like single point moorings and steel cantenary risers.
The ultimate goal of an anchor analysis is to ensure the structures operate efficiently and that accidents are avoided. The consequences of accidents in this field can be devastating so any time precautions can be taken that decrease the chances of them occurring, they should be. With STA's assistance, drilling operations implement measures that reduce those accidents but the firm can also be there with spill containment and oil spill cleanup assistance when needed.
