Rig Floor Equipment: Easy offline capabilities for conventional rigs ///

The Derrick Stand Building (DSB) System developed by ODS International can be retrofitted to virtually any rig mast or derrick configuration, and provides the ability to build stands of drill pipe, drill collars and casing independent of well-center activities. In so doing, the rig operator avoids the need to pick up or lay down tubulars with the main hook, resulting in significant time savings at the beginning or end of the well, or any other time when pipe must be run from the deck. The system can also be used as a reliable backup to an existing column pipe-racking system. “The DSB System provides immediate efficiency gains without the cost or critical path failure impact of traditional column pipe-racking systems,” states Richard Hancock, president of ODS International.
