Rig Integration & Mechanization

Page last modified
November 19 2023

Rig integration systems can help you to achieve safety and productivity goals once thought impossible in challenging operations. By engaging with operators and drilling contractors during or after rig building, we can recommend and install the optimal rig equipment package to improve immediate and long-term operational outcomes.

Our packages comprise three main integration levels with different levels of complexity—from a simple installation of a tong and positioning device to a complete integration of equipment with the driller’s console. These packages include modular equipment to connect to your existing rig systems in a way that least disrupts the current package and conserves valuable rig-floor space.

Basic integration: The driller controls the positioning device and the tong operator controls the tong and backup functions remotely using the HiPer control system.

Intermediate integration: The tong operator controls both the positioning device and tong remotely using the HiPer control system.

Full integration: Both the positioning device and tong are operated from the driller’s chair.
