Rig Lay-Up & Preservation Services

Rig lay-up and preservation services are tailored to the clients’ requirements to prevent excessive or accelerated deterioration of the rig and its equipment. These preservation procedures will greatly depend on a company’s needs to either warm stack or cold stack their assets.

  • Pre-Stacking Survey for preservation stacking planning
  • Warm Stacking (contract ready)
  • Cold Stacking (dead vessel)
  • Preservative Measures
  • Maintenance
  • Re-commissioning and Reactivation
  • Stacking Management and Re-commissioning Software

The objectives of the MNM Strategic Partner asset preservation program are twofold and are noted in no priority, one to minimize the company’s exposure financially while new revenue streams are being sourced. While at the same time protecting the assets ensuring the equipment’s full term “life cycle” can still be realized, and as a consequence the unit and assets returned to service economically in the shortest possible period of time. Our competitors are focused in the main on preservation only; our first hand operational experience uniquely aligns us with our clients’ requirements.


Reactivation of an asset whether it has been properly preserved or not is a technical process that can be unnecessarily inefficient and costly if experienced personnel are not utilized for the process. Reactivation mainly involves commissioning and testing the equipment with necessary important prestart checks carried out beforehand. This is pending the preservation methods used that may have important factors on the process for reactivation. MNM Strategic Partners has been active in Commissioning for over 6 years and have successfully completed three (3) rig commissioning projects since the company began.

It is important to know the details of the preservation conducted so that the materials can be removed and equipment cleaned equipment lubricated prior to start up. As with any commissioning and reactivation it is important to ensure pre start inspections and testing are conducted prior to equipment start up.
