Velosi was appointed by ADNOC to update and develop a comprehensive Rig move manual as a single document for all types of onshore Rigs being utilized at ADNOC Drilling, as per current ADNOC standards and best Industrial practices.


The project aims to provide a study and assessment of existing Rig move manuals of all the types of individual onshore Rigs and find gaps to improve and update comprehensive Rig move manuals as per best industrial practices. ADNOC Drilling has asked Velosi to develop a comprehensive Rig move manual that covers all onshore Rigs.

The activities as part of the scope of work covered the following:

  • Data collection related to existing Rig move manual.
  • Gap assessment on existing Rig move manual to highlight areas of improvement.
  • Updating the Rig move manual as per modern industrial practices.
  • Compilation of all sections to develop a single comprehensive ADNOC Drilling Rig move manual.


A comprehensive approach was set forth to ensure all essential components integral to the project scope were included.  Velosi carried out the Gap Assessment on the existing Rig move manual of ADNOC Drilling. Data was collected specifically for Rig move activities and areas of improvement were highlighted, defined, verified, and approved by the Company’s representatives.

Velosi engineering team updated sections of the existing Rig move manual as per best industrial practices and included all relevant details in each section related to Rig move activities. Important sections like HSE, Rig move policy, transportation practices, Rig move hazards, roles, and responsibilities, etc. were compiled for all onshore Rigs.


Velosi’s team of expert individuals successfully performed a Gap assessment and updated the outdated sections of the existing Rig move manual.  The team at Velosi also developed a comprehensive Rig move manual to include all onshore Rigs of ADNOC Drilling.


Velosi developed the following deliverables:

  1. Gap assessment report
