"Tubetrack" was conceived as an alternate reporting format to help the Industry keep track of its tubular in a much efficient manner, the Industry with its challenges on day to day basis had to have information instant which saves COST for all involved.
Tubular reports, a vital input to a successful drilling campaign had its difficulties with conventional reporting which resulted in a number of sheets, where keeping track of your vital asset was rather impossible and cumbersome.
Tubetrack resolves issues considerably offering a Client a relatively Paper free environment and better tracking of its tubular – a fact truly appreciated by Industry Majors.

Drops Object Survey
Tubestar is a member of the DROPS forum and supports the aims and objectives of the UK's Dropped Objects Prevention Scheme (DROPS). Dropped Object Surveys and Inspections are a key element of dropped object control and prevention management systems.
Tubestar can help prevent a potential dropped object becoming another unwelcome safety statistic by conducting detailed dropped object survey of hazardous areas. We are all committed to preventing harm to personnel and damage to equipment from dropped objects. Tubestar provides qualified inspectors to conduct a thorough dropped object survey of the derrick and other areas as required.
All the areas which are to be inspected are divided into different zones and are surveyed as per Client's dropped object policy. All the findings are recorded in the report with photographic evidence and corrective actions for the same. The report is divided into two parts, one is the Inspection Survey which includes all observations and another is the Failed Items list which covers the items which failed in the survey.
Generally, Survey tasks are:
Dropped objects pose a significant threat to personal safety; they also have the potential to cause damage to structures, plant and equipment leading to loss of containment and consequential release to the environment.
More and more companies are opting to go in for Eddy current inspection due to inherent benefit of non-requirement of paint removal for inspection which is a drawback in the conventional NDT method of MPI. Eddy current eliminates the need for surface preparation and saves a lot of time in paint removal and re-application of paint post inspection. Only at places, indications received prove-up is done with MPI.
One of the major advantages of eddy current as an NDT tool is the variety of inspections and measurements that can be performed. In the proper circumstances, eddy currents can be used for:
Some of the advantages of Eddy current inspection include:
Tubestar can inspect, test and certify all types of lifting appliances on location. We are a member of LEEA in the UK and follow the latest LOLER guidelines. These surveys provide a comprehensive register and database of all hoisting and lifting equipment on a drilling rig and include both fixed and loose lifting gears. All the equipment are inspected to the latest standards of LOLER / API / BS and manufacturers guidelines wherever applicable.
Rope access system (initially developed from the Mountaineering techniques) is a form of work positioning system which permits access to difficult to reach locations without use of Scaffolding, Cradles or Aerial platforms. Rope Access Technicians traverse on ropes to access work locations while suspended by their harness. This technique utilizes a backup fall arrest system which ensures redundancy. Rope access techniques have been used by the Industry for more than three decades and have an excellent safety track record.
Tubestar a front-runner in the Rope Access field offers complete Inspection, Maintenance and Repair services utilizing IRATA qualified technicians. IRATA safety procedures are being strictly adhered to. Compliance to ISO 22846-2:2012 & EN standards.
Tubestar is accredited with ABS for performing thickness gauging as part of a special periodic survey for mobile offshore drilling units. Our personnel have the necessary experience in various aspects of special survey and understand the special requirement survey to deliver accurate reports with tables and CAD drawings.
