COBRA Wash & Dope Tool

COBRA Wash & Dope Tool


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 still we experience personnel using HP cleaners and manual dope brushes when drill pipe and other tubulars are cleaned and doped prior to connection.

Facts

The COBRA can be installed in two different ways - stand alone or integrated with the pipe handling system. It can we tailor-made to fit most drill floor applications and to be used with most types of pipe handling equipment

As stand alone the COBRA is placed conveniently on the drill floor. When the DP moves from setback area towards well center the pipe handler makes a wash and dope stop. The COBRA will raise vertically and position itself embracing the DP pin end. After engaging a 360 degree sequence using HP water will wash the threads and apply dope. After a few seconds the DP can move on.

When integrated the COBRA is installed on the pipe handler/racker. The COBRA will raise to engage with the pin end and to carry out the wash and dope sequence.

Wash time and applied dope volume are PLC controlled parameters. The COBRA require power, HP water, air and dope to operate. It is ATEX certified, Zone 1, CE certification, etc. Optional choices are:

  • Dope pump stand alone. Data tracker and heat tracing available.
  • HP Wash Down Unit, integration available.
  • Supply station. Dope pump and HP Cleaner build into cabinet.

Advantages

Easy to install on the drill floor or pipe handler.

The COBRA will wash and dope the DP tool joints automatically and ensure clean threads before applying correct amount of dope.

Air-driven cylinder ensures gentle tool interaction with DP. Self-cleaning interior wash/flush sequence. Drain hose connection, no spill on drill floor. No personnel in drop zone while tripping in hole.


Benefits

Releases human resources. Personnel avoid the danger of dropped objects or working close to remote operated machines on drill floor (Red Zone).

No over torqued connections. Not taking up iron roughneck time (as when pipe doper is installed on iron roughneck).

Elevator Handling Tool

Elevator Handling Tool


When auto or manual elevator is hanging on the bails, then simply pick up the Elevator Handling Tool with a winch and close the elevator around the Elevator Handling Tool. Now the elevator can safely be lifted out of the bails.

Facts

Made of stainless steel.

Delivered with full lifting certification.

Weight only 11 kg.

Made in 3 sizes:
10"
16"
25"
Can also be customized


Advantages

Slings are no longer required.


Benefits

Elevator Handling Tool improves safety and efficiency when handling any size manual and auto elevators.

No risk of dropping the elevator.


PITBULL Torque Tool

PITBULL Torque Tool


Many rigs are still equipped with manual mud pump fluid end caps. These caps are usually tightened and loosened by use of sledgehammer.

Facts

Made of stainless steel. Tailor-made to fit any fluid end caps.

Rigtools can also provide a hydraulic or pneumatic torque wrench fit for purpose.


Advantages

The PITBULL Torque Tool eliminates use of sledgehammer. Correct and controlled torque is applied when making up end caps.


Benefits

Use of sledgehammer is a potential hazard to personnel and causes accidents while handling mud pump fluid end caps. This hazard is eliminated by using PITBULL Torque Tool. In addition it is more gentle to the equipment.


BOP Drift Tool

BOP Drift Tool


Drilling operations worldwide experience problems after subsea BOP testing if the annular packer elements fail to fully retract. This potentially fatal situation often occurs in deep and cold waters. To increase efficiency and prevent pulling the BOP we offer the BOP Drift as a solution to this problem. The BOP Drift was developed in close cooperation between RIGTOOLS' design team and a worldwide leading drilling contractor.

Facts

The BOP Drift will be designed and tailor-made to fit the rigs setup. It will be an integrated part of the BOP test string to allow for quick and safe drifting of BOP's.

After testing rams and annular preventers, the test string is pulled out of the BOP.

Drilling fluids can circulate freely through 8 channels with no flow restrictions in the annulus.

API 7K certified.


Advantages

The tapered shape on the BOP Drift assists the annular packer element to retract to original setting if the annular packers are reluctant to retract fully prior to "drifting". Pulling the BOP stack is no longer the only solution.


Benefits

With the possibility of using the BOP Drift you prevent damaging the annular BOP and prevent retrieval of the marine riser and BOP. Generally the option of using the BOP Drift will eliminate annular failures and potential downtime, thus saving time and money.


BHA Wash Tool

BHA Wash Tool


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 still we experience personnel using HP cleaners when BHA is
pulled through rotary.

Facts

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.

The BHA Wash Tool can be installed either with three legged sling or with the special made Running Tool.

BHA Wash Tool is welded in heavy stainless steel and in compliance with “Dropped Object Prevention Handbook”.
CE certification.
Welding certificate.


Advantages

Easy to install on top of diverter or bell nipple.
Improves safety on drill floor.
No risk of dropped objects.
No debris on drill floor or windows from using manual HP cleaning. All debris will be kept below rotary. Clean and tidy.
BHA will be pulled faster out of hole, no stops for manual HP cleaning.
Clean BHA when racking back or laying down on deck.


Benefits

BHA Wash Tool eliminates personnel using manual HP cleaners in Red Zone when BHA etc. is pulled through rotary.

No exposure to the danger of dropped objects or working close to remote operated machines on drill floor.

The tool only uses very limited water volume when HP cleaning the BHA.

Less time spent on housekeeping after tripping, fast moving to next operation, less flat spots on operational trends.
