of operating platforms (the rigs) and is prepared to push and test and/ or sample with our own test equipment, or to push and test with our clients’ provided testing equipment. When we push and test and/ or sample using our clients’ provided equipment this is done entirely at the direction of our client and all risk associated with loss or damage of test equipment is the client’s.
All site access, selection of test positions and specifics of testing and/ or sampling adopted is to our client’s specification and requirements. IGS is equipped to test and/ or sample using a variety of techniques and to a variety of test loads. Techniques, sampling types and quantities, and/or test loads chosen by the client directly dictate productivity rates
It is always necessary to check for services before testing or sampling
on a site. This services checking is our client’s responsibility. IGS takes
no responsibility for damage to in-ground services unless that damage is
occasioned entirely by our own negligence. .

environmental inductions (or similar). On such occasions, and for the full
period of time spent in these inductions, or waiting for them, or otherwise
delayed by them, or as a consequence of them, or of any other project-specific
requirements of the client, IGS will charge for that time at the daily rate for
rig and crew listed in the applicable

inductions or medicals or equipment modifications dictated by client will be
on-charged at cost+15%.
