Herrenknecht Vertical Rig - B011

Herrenknecht Vertical Rig - B011

Swift 10 is a super singles hydraulic drilling rig and will therewith never beat existing tripping records in comparison to standard jack ups that handle triples. Advantages are typically that no separate singling in and singling out time is being used. (About 3 days time advantage per well). Also slipping and cutting is being eliminated with the hydraulic hoist.

The automated pipe handling system can handle up to 30 joints range 3 pipe (13.5 mtr/45 ft) per hour. In automatic mode the system can handle 2 7/8 to 9 5/8 pipe. In semi automatic mode up to 24” pipe can be handled. 30” conductor is run with the use of a special designed handling frame in a safe and efficient manner by crane. Our advice is to pre drill rather then driving the conductor. The limited hoisting height makes running a hammer inconvenient.

Pulling out or running in the hole is at the same pace. As an example 9 5/8 casing can be pulled out of the hole and laid in baskets at an average pace of 26 joints per hour and is immediately ready for back loading. Running in the hole is being limited by the computer make up torque checks.
