Thanks for all of your help on the Highlander and Culzean project. You and your team really helped to drive quality in the rig delivery and commissioning and the results showed the benefit of this effort. I hope to cross paths on another project in future.
We were very impressed by their capabilities and performance. It is fair to say they exceeded our expectations.
Better than Competitors: “The Value from Kingston Systems is impressive. Their reporting alone far exceeds the quality from any of their near competitors. The inspectors go the extra mile. Very impressed.” A.M, DSV. Maersk Oil
If just makes sense to engage their services. The risks on these advanced rigs are too great. Kingston provides great services, detailed and clear reporting, that cuts through the mire.
"Kingston" is professional and methodical. Communication is clear and structured, rather than being a piecemeal/continuous stream of requests. It is a real value add to have someone who understands controls, computers and software on our side.
“We are very satisfied with the work Kingston Systems performed on our project.”
You have found some very serious issues things (punch items) that should be repaired. I am surprised that we have not found these (errors and omissions). I am sending your findings to the Engineering and Quality Control Departments @ headquarters.
Kingston Systems Inspectors provided us with a great deal of assistance during the Commissioning and Acceptance of the Saipem 12000 in Korea and while enroute to Congo. As experienced controls inspectors, the Kingston Systems team is professional well trained to focus on attention to detail, software quality and testing. They have been a great help to our team.
I had the occasion to work closely with Kingston Systems surveyors during the commissioning and acceptance process of the deep water drill ship Saipem 12000. I was very satisfied of the overall support provided during this mission.
You supplement the team very well. The Electrical Engineers do not understand this (software), the Electronics are too busy pushing paper and managing everything else, the ET’s, well, they take orders well. You (Kingston Systems) can stay focused and diligent, plus you bring experience from many more rigs.
I enjoyed working with Kingston Systems, they quickly became an integral part of our team and helped us with our common objectives. Kingston Systems proactively helped identify and correct issues that might have slowed down, or stopped, operations in the future. Additionally Kingston Systems helped us establish core processes and tools that are a must for a 6th generation rig.…
I do not trust the (vendor’s) punch list we will use Kingston’s. It is more accurate and detailed
Extremely Satisfied: I had the occasion to work closely with Kingston Systems surveyors during the commissioning and acceptance process of the deepwater drill ship Saipem 12000. I was very satisfied of the overall support provided during this mission
Kingston Systems has been of good value to us on the Saipem 12000. They have been able to manage the vendors (NOV) to improve their support quality; getting them to commit to resolutions and then verifying completion. Kingston Systems has the same goals as Saipem; to see the rig operate smoother and safer. I am impressed by their professionalism and…
Kingston Systems formed a vital part of our acceptance team. We are very pleased with their work.
These are the guys we need on all our future rig intakes
Consultant "Are our reports adding value to you and the team?" Cairn Company Man "Heck Yes! Glad you are here!"
When asked if our services were providing value, the Company Man for this UK based International Oil Company responded ... "*uck Yeah!"
"The Kingston audit was much appreciated by both Shell and Ensco. Your report clarifies how the Software Management system needs to be applied in a practical manner and what pro-active checks can be done to make sure system weaknesses and instabilities are picked up as soon as possible rather than waiting for such issues to cause downtime or worse."
