DRILLING RIGS- GeneralSTATIONARY DRILLING RIGS MOBILE DRILLING RIGS
Stands in the tripple
drawwork over 1000 HP, mudpumps over 1000 HP
Uses 5” DP –
at greater depth less pressure losses.
Havy casing string run deeper
Hook loads over 200 t
Diesel electric drive.
Flexible range of RPM and SPM
Substructure higher and drilling floor greater area.
DP length upper limit for range
Better Contractor’s References.
Greater investmens at start
More days for moving
More truck loads
Longer rigging up
Large surface of well site
more experienced and specialist
Havy drilling and handling equipment
More investment for spare part stock
Smaller investment at start
Less truck loads
Less area for well site
Smaller waste pit
Less number of drilling crew
Less sparet parts stock
Stands in the double- slow triping
When drill deeper with 4 ½” DP or less, greater pressure drops.
Restricted running depth of intermediate casing if wellconstruction is complex due overpressure and lost circulation zones.
Mostly mechanical rigs
high noise level.
Mud pump SPM restricted due drive diesel engine. Required 3liner size
Restricted height bellow rotary table for BOP stack
Less surface of drilling floor
DP length restricted on bottom length limit.
If compare stationaru and mobile drilling rig we can notice following advantage- disadvantages:
