RIG MOVE EXCELLENCE® (RME)
300% ROI. That’s what happens for the operator when they use our Rig Move Excellence® program. Our crews have had years of military experience moving equipment safely, securely and quickly. We have assisted in more than 3600 rig moves, with a 98.5% success rate in reducing ‘flat time’ between rig release on one pad to spud on the next. We assist during the rig-up, rig-down and logistics in-between to assist with bringing your rigs back online quickly and safely every time. Our Check-6® RME database provides detailed benchmarks, analytics and efficiencies worldwide. In most cases, we are able to cut ½ of the time per stage off fracking operations.
Gordon Tschritter Check-6 Director of Logistics Solutions played a pivotal role in the origin of Check-6. He was a deep-water drilling engineer in 2007 in the Gulf of Mexico and was increasingly frustrated with his crews doing things twice, and incurring too many injuries. He had read a white paper from a PhD from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. Dr.Rhona Flin surmised that the oil field would be well-served if companies employed the experience and leadership of military aviators to help companies consistently trap human error.
Gordon made a phone call one Sunday afternoon to Brian “Bru” Brurud, and wanted to know if this former fighter pilot could devise a curriculum he could implement among his crews. Following the implementation of the syllabus, Gordon’s crews saw a dramatic turnaround. A few years later, Gordon decided to leave his career and come work for Check-6, imparting his wisdom and experience in logistics, particularly regarding Rig Moves. He found tremendous ROI when the Check-6 team was working with companies to improve their efficiency and profitability with the Rig Move Excellence (trademark) program. In fact, now the Rig Move Excellence (trademark) team is moving rigs all over the world: everywhere from Midland Texas to Saudi Arabia, assisting clients in cutting days off rig moves, doing things right, doing things once, and vastly improving his clients’ bottom line.
