    Thales and Apache team to provide rig positioning service

    News // February 1, 2002
    In an Australian first, Thales GeoSolutions (Australasia) Ltd and Apache Energy have teamed together to develop a new set of quality control procedures for rig positioning services in the Northwest Shelf. The procedure is a set of rigorous tests completed by company representatives providing independent real-time QC offshore checks developed by Apache's Craig Duncan and Thales' Anthony Kerr.

    The responsibility of 3rd party quality control representatives is now placed amongst individual members of the two operating companies. It is envisioned that the increase in responsibility level will encourage rig-positioning operations to be performedmore efficiently.
