Frank’s Attains API Spec Q2 Certification for Its Sakhalin Operations Base

June 17, 2019

Frank’s International recently achieved API Spec Q2 Certification for its Sakhalin operations base. The certification marks the first API Spec Q2 designation for a well construction and offshore services provider in the Russian Federation.


Frank’s has provided tubular running services and conductor installation services since 1998 for oil and gas operators on the island of Sakhalin, which is located off the far east coast of Russia. In 2015, Frank’s established a permanent operational facility in that remote location and applied for API Spec Q2 certification in 2017. Following a successful series of certification audits in 2018, Frank’s Sakhalin was granted the API Spec Q2 certification, which is widely recognized as a leading quality management system certification for oil and natural gas service providers.


This achievement marks the latest in Frank’s pursuit of higher-level quality management system certifications, such as API Spec Q1, ISO 9001:2015, ISO 4001:2015, and ISO 45001:2015.  In addition to Sakhalin, other API Spec Q2 certified Frank’s locations include Dubai, UAE; Labuan, Malaysia; and Lafayette, La, USA.


“Rigorous certifications, such as API Spec Q2, highlight the Frank’s global commitment to leading-edge quality management and to meeting or exceeding customer quality requirements. I am proud of the efforts of the Sakhalin team that led to this achievement,” remarked Roberto Beneventi, Vice President of Asia Pacific for Frank’s International.
