The high level of safety in today’s drilling operations around the world require special attention to equipment. Most drilling rigs have fully automated derrick and pipe handling systems. In certain regions the legislation prohibits personnel to work on the drill floor while the automatic pipe handling machines are in use. But we still experience personnel using HP cleaners when BHA is pulled out through rotary.
The tool is tailor-made to fit on top of the diverter or bell nipple. It connects to the rig’s HP system or a special HP unit fit for purpose. Actuation of HP water can be done locally on the drill floor or remotely from driller’s cabin.
