A Highly Mobile Drilling Rig Capable of Working Efficiently in Extreme Arctic Conditions

Rig 25

Crawford Rig 25 contains state-of-the-art equipment that is highlighted by a fully automated driller’s cabin and modern AC technology.

It is a fully integrated, multiple module unit that can drill on ten-foot well spacing. The rig layout consists of six individual modules, resulting in lightweight components that can be efficiently moved from pad to pad while maintaining heat in each module. The substructure module consists of the mast, rig floor equipment, BOP stack, and choke manifold. The pipeshed module houses the pipeskate unit, a drill pipe bucking machine, along with storage tubs for holding drill pipe during rig moves. The casing shed module houses pipe racks for casing storage and a pipe transfer system used for moving tubulars to the pipeshed. The mud pit module uses an innovative circular pit design that houses 1,250 barrels of mud tankage. This module also contains centrifugal pumps, an automated valve system, and solids control equipment. The mud pump module contains two NOV 12P-160 triplex mud pumps, injection pump, 150 HP boiler, closed-loop heat exchanger, and parts storage. The power module consists of three Caterpillar 3516C coupled to Kato generators, air compressors, highline transformer, and external radiators.

Rig 25 is trailerized, and uses oilfield trucks for moving. This configuration minimizes module weights and allows for faster moving speeds over long distances. Each module is equipped with a hydraulic walking system used for short distance well to well moves.

The bootstrap mast hoisting capacity is 750,000 lbs. with a twelve-line hook up, and the cantilevered substructure is capable of a combined load of 500,000 lbs. setback and 750,000 lbs. rotary.
