About us

Fearnley Procter Group has over the years developed their NS System to assist companies in the Oil & Gas Industry to minimise the amount of time lost to equipment failure during drilling operations.

The NS System (NS stands for Non-productive-time Solutions) focuses on better education, more up to date information and the adoption and implementation of the NS-1™ and NS-2™ standards to achieve this goal.

With the search for oil & gas pushing equipment and drilling performance harder than ever before never has this focus on equipment being designed, manufactured and inspected to higher standards been more important than it is now.

The NS Information Hub is our most recent investment in providing global support on a local basis.

The current content consists of the two Standards:

NS-1TM - Quality and Inspection Requirements for New and Refurbished Drilling and Completion Equipment.

NS-2TM - Drillstring Inspection Standard for Used Drilling Equipment.

In addition there are nearly 30 additional publications covering operations, design, engineering as well as training on and around the subject of improving performance.
