• Middle East (ME) Rig 1800/2000/3000

    The Middle East Rig (1800/2000/3000) delivers the horsepower you need and withstands the high ambient temperatures of the desert.

     

    Description

    • Rugged Design: The Middle East Rigs are specifically designed to work in the harsh environment and high ambient temperatures of the desert. The superior NOV craftsmanship of the ME Rigs withstands high temperatures and rough road conditions. High quality materials, heavy-duty construction, state-of-the-art design technology, and high manufacturing standards ensure reliable performance in the desert environment.
    • Mobility: In addition to its rugged and efficient design, the design and layout also allows for fast rig-up/down to move quickly between well-sites or on a well-pad. The ME rigs are designed to improve efficiencies and reduce transit time by maximizing load sizes while operating in the desert.
    • Safety: Packaged in a fast-moving configuration, the ME rigs incorporate all of the safety features and reliability expected from National Oiwell Varco. Additionally, advanced field-proven NOV equipment such as the Top Drive, PipeCat Laydown System, and Iron Roughneck remove personnel from the drill floor where accidents are most likely to occur.
