Drilling Contractor Magazine – September/October 2008:
Often rigs are disassembled, transported and re-assembled on an adjacent well. The Rig Walker eliminates the time-consuming process of rig-down. It uses hydraulics to lift and transverse the entire rig with control, stability and precision to its new drilling location safely. Key features include: 2.4 million-lb lift capacity provides ability to not only skid the rig but also transport full stands of setback; skids 10 ft in 15 minutes; no rig-down means less wear on the structure, less time to relocate the rig and more time spent drilling.
