RiCon™ & drillCERT

Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) services for drilling risers


Targeted, efficient and well executed maintenance is crucial for offshore operations. HMH’s unique Lifecycle Services are based on our extensive experience in offshore drilling. By gathering data from the rig’s monitoring system through our RiCon tool, we get the full overview.

The system helps us to identify where to focus maintenance and when it’s time for an overhaul. Our methodology reduces inspection costs, while still qualifying for DNV GL Drill and ABS CDS notations, same as with the traditional maintenance model.


DrillCERT is a global, continuous API certification program for marine drilling risers. Based on condition-based inspection methodology, the calendar based 5-year inspection interval can often be extended up to a 12-year interval.

DrillCERT categorizes riser joints into two primary usage groups: Active & Preserved. Customers determine the percentage of active vs. preserved joints each year to set benchmark pricing. Logistics, personnel travel, work in nonGOM locations incur additional charges.
