API Spec Q2 Training


API Spec Q2 comes from The American Petroleum Institute, the only national trade association that represents all aspects of America’s oil and natural gas industry. The catalyst for Q2 was the devastating Deep water Horizon Oil spill which saw lives lost, catastrophic environmental damage and economic turmoil.  It is aimed at service organization supplying services for the upstream petroleum and natural gas industries.

API Spec Q2 covers a range of key principles, such as Management of Change, Calibration, Audit, Personnel Competence, Preventative Actions, Risk Management and Reporting / Data Analysis. API Spec Q2 is evidence driven, meaning that companies will have to capture and report on as many data points as possible.

The benefits of complying with API Spec Q2 will be better management of risk and improved business operations.  As evidence based specification, those higher in the supply chain and ultimately, the Super Majors will demand adherence from those below.


We go to the client’s offices and field locations for the evaluations and training. This program starts at the top with executive management, and evaluates all tiers of employee services down to the products and services produced by the company. For larger and longer term efforts we can also embed our personnel within a client’s organization to provide quality assurance oversight every step of the way and be part of their daily operation.

Types of client locations include: onshore field sites including drilling rig sites, Offices; Offshore drilling platforms; and Supplier manufacturing facilities.
