• Amphion

    Our Amphion Integrated System is a rig control system for managing, controlling and monitoring rig floor equipment in a safe and efficient manner.
    Description

    We have accomplished this through the use of color-graphic data viewed on touchscreens that are integrated into our operator workstations. In order to ensure maximum safety during drilling and tripping processes, the driller, assistant driller, and/or pipe handler supervise and control all drilling related functions through the use of activity based screens and equipment specific screens. Our Amphion system has a modular design making it configurable and expandable from land rigs to complex offshore rigs. Our system is field-proven with over 500 systems installed worldwide.
