Nabors 2000HP Workover Rig 439E Description
Nabors is a leading provider of offshore platform workover and drilling rigs. Workover rigs, also called completion rigs or pulling units, Nabors 2000HP Workover Rig 439E specialized oil rigs set up for inserting or pulling pipe tubing in and out of wells. An operator uses workover crews when an oil well is being drilled, is undergoing repair or is being retired. These crews are relatively small compared to other rig crews and consist of tool pushers, operators or relief operators, derrick men and floormen or roughnecks.
A Work-over Rig is similar to a hoist or a telescoping tower secured with wires, that allows pipe and down-hole equipment to be run into and out of a well. Mostly truck-mounted mobile rigs, the onshore Nabors 2000HP Workover Rig 439E is very mobile. Thus it can be quickly moved between the fields. Onshore work-over rigs could be of various sizes and capacities and mainly referred to as light and heavy-duty. Service depth, work-over depth and load capacities are the key differentiation factors.
Nabors was also a pioneer in the platform workover rig market with its SunDowner and Super SunDowner series. These rigs can rig up, complete the assigned project, and rig down in a very short time-frame.
Nabors 2000HP Workover Rig 439E is used in the heaviest application. For example, they are used in complete well work-over operations, whereby a well is killed (production stopped) and tubing and completion equipment is removed. Workover Rigs are sometimes known by different name like completion wells or pulling units.
