Drilling equipment includes drill rigs, hoisting equipment, downhole motors, and other rig components used in well drilling operations.
Blowout preventers (BOPs) are specialized valve assemblies that prevent uncontrolled flow of formation fluid during well drilling operations. Several assemblies are typically stacked to create a fail-safe mechanism.
Catwalk machines (CWM) are pipe handling systems that are used to transport tubular goods and ancillary equipment to and from the drill floor.
Cementing units are unified platforms of motors, pumps, reservoirs, and controls which provide on-site conrete mixing and dispensing to drilling applications.
Downhole motors consist of a section of drill string that contains a progressive cavity displacement pump (PCDP). Drilling fluid is pumped through the downhole motor providing additional power to the bit while drilling.
Draw-works are primarily used to hoist and lower the drilling line on a rotary drilling rig.
Drilling rigs are machines that creates holes (boreholes) and/or shafts in the ground. They are equipped with deck engines or truck engines, hoists or lifts, compressors, pumps, and pipe-handling equipment.
Iron roughnecks automate pipe handling operations. They are used to clamp and exert torque on sections of drill pipe in order to complete make/break cycles during drilling operations.
Measurement while drilling (MWD) systems report wellbore position, drill bit performance, and drill string orientation to an operator to maximize drilling productivity. It is related to logging while drilling (LWD).
Snubbing units are used to perform well intervention on live or dead oil and gas wells. They are used to drive pipe into a well bore and overcome well pressure that is preventing conventional drill rig operations.
Top drives are suspended mechanical devices that provide torque to the drill string and serve as an alternative to the use of a Kelly drive or rotary table.
