    Compact, self-deploying drilling package Fig 1National Oilwell Varco's new Rapid Rig is an efficient "singles" land rig delivering maximum speed, safety and performance in a compact, road-legal drilling package. Developed with a 250-ton hook load capacity for shallow to moderate well depths, the system's smaller size and self-deploying design allow for ease of transport and faster onsite rig-up. The fully automated rig floor, coupled with a new pipe handling system, reduces crew size and accident exposure while providing an efficient work environment. The Rapid Rig's compact components and AC-powered primary systems reduce environmental impact at the wellsite. Features include the TDS-10SA AC-powered top drive, which remains mounted in mast with block for transport, while keeping the drill line reeved in place. The AC drawworks is single-speed and gear-driven, with regenerative braking. ST-80 Iron Roughneck and stabbing guide creates an automated rig floor with maximum safety and efficiency.
