CDIL, one of the leading providers of well examination services to the global oil and gas industry, has recently been awarded contracts from several Well Operators to provide Independent Well Examination / Well Verification services for offshore wells in the UK, Denmark, Norway, Egypt, Gabon and Ireland. Independent Well Examination / Verification has been a legal requirement in the UK since 1996 and for offshore wells in EU countries since 2015, however, it is now good to see that more Operators are utilising independent well examination for all their operated wells, irrespective of whether it is a legal requirement.
