In this book, Lyons provides engineers with a solid background for understanding the tools used for successful drilling operations. A successful drilling operation depends not only on the skills and capabilities of the drilling staff but also on expert knowledge of the equipment. However, many in the business have found that the number competently trained, properly developed and experienced drilling personnel has dropped dramatically over the last decade. Many operations are simply short of competent rig personnel in an industry where technology has changed dramatically in that same time period. This is a 'quick lookup' guide to the required technical equipment used in a progressive ever changing operational environment and working rig culture. Concise and easy to read, "The Drilling Rig Equipment Field Manual" presents a description of the various types of rig equipment including prime movers, power transmission, pumps and compressors. The book is heavily illustrated to add a visual dimension not found in other books. The objective is to allow the reader to develop a 'feel' for the parameters needed to design and their relative importance.
It includes expert coverage of derricks and portable masts. It is a guide to rotary equipment and mud pumps. It covers drill string, drilling bits and downhole tools.
