Bentec’s Nomad-Class rig, jointly developed with international drilling contractor KCA DEUTAG is a new land rig designed for desert terrain conditions. The first of its type, the T-211, was mobilized to Algeria earlier this year to work for BP Exploration Algeria under contract for KCA DEUTAG.
The rig has been designed in response to customer demand for highly mobile and more efficient drilling rigs capable of drilling wells to 15,000 ft (4,572 m) or more. Existing rigs can take more than 10 days to move between locations, whereas the Nomad Rig is designed to take 5 days to move up to 6.2 mi (10 km) between well locations over flat terrain. It is equipped with special transportation carriages that allow the derrick and drill floor substructure to be moved as complete assemblies over flat terrain conditions, thereby reducing disassembly and assembly times. These assemblies can also be disassembled further into smaller rig packages...
