New Plymouth ISO Recertification

Tasman are proud to have recently completed a certification audit with @DNV, which took place at our New Plymouth facility in New Zealand.

This audit is part of our revised certification agreement that expanded the scope of certification to cover all sites. This now includes our facilities in New Zealand, Western Australia, and Queensland under one encompassing certification.

During the revision, the scope of certification was also amended to cover product sales, the rental of drilling and well intervention tools, and associated support services to the Oilfield (Onshore and Offshore), Coal Seam Gas, Geothermal, and Mining sectors, as well as other energy-providing sectors.

This process will provide certification of our Integrated Management System’s compliance with ISO 45001:2018, ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 9001:2015.

The two-day audit at our New Plymouth facility identified no non-conformances, one observation, and two opportunities for improvement. The key objective of this audit was to determine the conformity of the Integrated Management System with relevant standards, alongside evaluating its effectiveness to ensure Tasman can achieve specified objectives and meet statutory, regulatory, and contractual requirements.

As a world-leading certification body, DNV helps assure the performance of our products, people, facilities, and supply chains. These certifications provide clients with a high level of assurance that our services and products comply with an internally recognised standard.

Thank you to our incredible team for your efforts! We’re looking forward to our next DNV certification audit planned for the Bassendean facility in November this year.

9 5/8” Rubblizer™ Achieves Longest Interval at 1,017ft

Tasman are proud partners of Deep Casing Tools, who deliver simple, sustainable innovation across the well life cycle.

Deep Casing Tools’ Rubblizer™ technology achieved its longest interval to date at 1,017 ft when it was deployed to aid our client’s casing recovery operation in Queensland.

Our client was experiencing issues with sustained annulus casing pressure, and the recovery of a section of 9 5/8” casing was required. This casing was cemented in place from a depth of 155m back to the surface.

The annulus pressure was stabilised, before the Rubblizer™ was used to recover the top section of casing. A series of cuts were performed and this was achieved with two passes from 508 ft BRT back up to 39 ft BRT, and a third pass operating the tool across the remaining 12 casing connections to achieve a total length of 1,017 ft. This is the longest interval the tool has been operated across to date!

Following the successful operation, our client’s Senior Drilling Engineer commented, “The Rubblizer™ operation was a success and all indications were that the casing was free. We would not hesitate to use the tool again.”

Case Study: Tasman Deploy 3 1/8” Impulse Downhole ActiPulse® FRT for CSG Client

In November Tasman assisted a valued client in the Australian CSG market with a shallow-depth liner pull operation.

Conventional cut and pull operations using a Jar were not possible due to limitations of the rig package and the shallow depth of the liner top. As an alternative, our team deployed a 3 1/8” @Impulse Downhole ActiPulse FRT to reduce the friction of the gravel pack, mitigate jarring damage to the rig package, and ensure personnel safety.
