Case Study on Drawing Conversions for Drilling Service Provider

The Client

The client is based in Europe (Denmark) and has supplied drilling services to oil and gas producers for five decades. With 4,000 employees, they predominantly work in the North Sea area. The client operated harsh environment jack-up rigs and drilling equipment that had to be updated on regular basis to reflect the latest innovation and safety standards. They are continually seeking ways to improve the quality and efficiency of their services.

Challenges Faced by the Client

The client wanted to update their equipment designs by converting legacy files to new drawings that met current standards. They wanted an engineering services partner with the right expertise in industrial equipment drawings to match their own quality standards by providing sufficient attention to details and accuracy of equipment drawings.

The project parameters were as follows -

  • Recreation of accurate industrial equipment drawings from legacy PDF files with many illegible details
  • Recreation of accurate industrial equipment drawings from legacy PDF files with many illegible details

FWS' Solution

The Flatworld Solutions' drawing conversion specialist prepared the solution as follows -

  • A team of three drafting specialists, account manager, and a quality manager was assigned the task
  • Regular communications were maintained with the client to ensure that work matched with their expectations and company standards
  • Revisions were made as requested and marked by the client
  • The final project deliverables (1200 new drawings) were met in about 20 days

The Results

This project shows how legacy drawing conversions can be made more cost-effective for clients.
