Rig #9 - QuickSilver Drilling System

Rig 7

November, 2011 we brought online our new drilling Rig #9. The QuickSilver Drilling System is designed to rig up and down on a new location (within 100 miles) in less than 48 hours. All components requiring elevation are raised with hydraulic cylinders; no cranes are required. Round bottom mud tanks eleminate the need for mud guns. GES' Electronic Driller provides automated control of WOB, ROP and RT."click here."
