At Craig Energy, our ultimate goal is to drive efficiency. We are continuing that effort by adding a new rig to our lineup: the Predator. Produced by Atlas Copco, the Predator was built based on suggestions from large and small drilling contractors and producers.

Designed specifically for the oil and gas industry to meet its complex drilling and financial demands, the Predator has the ability to drill vertical, directional, and horizontal holes with air and mud in unconventional formations. It has a pullback of 220,000 pounds, pulldown of 50,000 pounds, and can drill to depths of 11,500 feet. With all of its capabilities, the Predator reduces cost and non-drilling time while improving performance and energy efficiency. The rig goes above and beyond the minimum requirements to enhance safety with increased automation and hands-free pipe handling. It also requires less manual labour and a smaller crew. hosting information . In some case studies, the rig has reduced the crew to a team of only three, and decreased drilling time from 20 to 13 hours. The Predator does all of this with minimal environmental disturbance.

The Predator is the epitome of productivity, and was the obvious choice to add to Craig Energy’s arsenal to aid in our goal of driving efficiencies. The rig gets up and running quickly, reducing cycle time and with smaller crews and almost 50% reduction in time, costs are cut significantly as well.

Fracking Water

For the first time, the federal government has released safety mandates for fracking on federal and Indian lands. These new fracking regulations are, as of now, not applicable on private or state owned land.

Environmentalists say that fracking poses risks, using water, sand, and chemicals to extract oil or gas from a well. The new rules are intended to limit that risk. Lithuania automatic translations They include: stipulations to ensure groundwater protection, increased transparency regarding chemicals used, higher storage standards, and more detailed information on preexisting wells.

“This rule will protect public health and the environment during and after hydraulic fracturing operations at a modest cost while both respecting the work previously done by the industry, the states and the tribes and promoting the adoption of more protective standards across the country,” said Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management Janice Schneider.

At Craig Energy, these regulations are nothing new as most of them are already in place at the state level. We execute our well site operations to the highest standards of safety and environmental protection, using state of the art drilling and cementing equipment to protect the surface section of each well we drill. And, with our end-to-end integrated approach, we are familiar with every aspect of the wellbore, making the entire process more cost effective and streamlined. server hosting info Farcollginsheadslec

Instead of waiting for a big rig to become available, surface drilling can start as soon as the pad construction is complete and a permit is in place. A spudder rig can drill the first several thousand feet of the well (depending on state regulations, this depth can vary).

So what does this mean for business?

-Efficiency – using the right resources for the job. By utilizing surface drilling ahead of the big rig you don’t have an expensive large rig waiting on:

  • The BOP to be nippled up
  • Surface cement to be pumped and set
  • Lost circulation issues on the surface hole
  • Formation drilling difficulties on the surface hole
  • Swapping from fluids and waiting on cleaning tanks
  • Permits

– Decreased cycle time. The surface rig starts the drilling process before a larger rig arrives, letting that larger rig focus on the deep drilling.

  • With the surface hole drilled, cased and cemented when the large rig arrives you are cutting back the time the big rig is on location.

-Lower costs. The surface rigs have a footage rate that is predictable for each well regardless of how long it takes to drill. The spread of a large rig for the same time is often much more expensive. A surface rig means:

  • No third party casing crew
  • Less water usage
  • Less water disposal
  • No time to swap from water to oil based muds

-Streamlined operations. Pads can be brought on at a quicker pace, saving several days in the drilling process and getting the operator closer to cash flow faster.

Efficiency is the backbone to shale oil, regardless of volatile market conditions, and is a constant driver to our success as an industry. To be the most efficient, utilize surface drilling to get up and running quickly and inexpensively. hosting information . web page speed server hosting info .
