• Slant Rig and Vertical Slant Rig (VSR)

    The Slant Rig and VSR “Singles” rig provides quicker access to the pay zone, which translates to cost savings and the capability to drill more wells.
    Description

    • Innovative Technology: National Oilwell Varco designs and manufactures equipment to provide a solution that will work and add value in the areas where your equipment operates. By integrating new technology, standard product and purpose-built designs, NOV builds the rig that meets your needs in the environment in which you work.
    • Customized Drilling: The VSR “Singles” rig provides quicker access to the pay zone, which translates to cost savings and the capability to drill more wells. The VSR is particularly adept in the coal seam gas/coal bed methane area, using its slant capability to reduce the time it takes to access the coal seam. This capability, coupled with its automated suite of proven NOV equipment and a smaller footprint, increases safety while improving the bottom line.
    • Versatility: The VSR is a versatile rig that can navigate between 45° and 90° at three degree (3°) increments, better positioning the rig to meet your drilling needs. An advanced hydraulic system allows the mast to be positioned perfectly over the wellbore at whatever angle is required. Whether you are operating at a slant or conducting vertical drilling, the Vertical/Slant rig meets your capability needs.
    • Mobility: The VSR is designed to be fully mobile with a telescoping mast that easily travels with the pipehandler. An innovative substructure design quickly loads onto a separate trailer for easy transportation. The use of a Knuckle Boom pipe-handling system delivers components from the ground to the drill floor faster and more efficiently than conventional winch systems.
