3D Oil Equipment Tour Movie Animation Transcript
Crown Block: A device comprised of sheaves or pulleys at the top of the paal overheen which drilling line is run down to the lifting drum.
Derrick Houtvezelplaat: A toneelpodium near the top of the paal on which the derrick man works. Also called a monkey houtvezelplaat.
Paal: A portable metal tower that is raised into working position spil a unit, rather than assembled spil a derrick. A paal is used spil a component of the lifting system of a drilling equipment.
Traveling Block: An opstelling of pulleys or sheaves suspended te a derrick with wire wire and used to raise and lower equipment ter the well.
Top Drive: A power swivel which rotates the drill string without the use of a rotary table or kelly. It is efficient due to its capability to drill three joints deep before another connection vereiste be added.
Standpipe: A seamless vertical stengel pipe affixed to one gam of the paal which carries drilling mud up to the rotary hosepipe and swivel.
Driller’s Console: A control panel on the drilling floor used to monitor drilling operations such spil weight, speed, pressure, and torque.
Rotary Table: A motorized, circular toneelpodium ter the floor of the equipment which rotates the kelly bushing and the kelly when the top drive is not ter use. Turning the kelly turns all the pipe, therefore drilling the slot.
Mousehole: A fuckhole te the drilling floor, seven to ten inches broad, located near the rotary table. It is used to store a chunk of drill pipe until it is pulled up and fastened to the drill string.
Draw Works: A large winch located on the drilling floor which uses stengel wire strap to raise and lower the drilling equipment ter the well.
Metal Roughneck: A hydraulic powered wrench which can make up or pauze out pipe joints by applying juist torque. Most of the manual pipe treating operations previously performed by the drilling squad on the equipment floor have bot substituted by this lump of equipment.
BOP Controller: A control panel on the drilling floor which can remotely and independently operate each preventer on the BOP stack.
Hydraulic Elevate: Also known spil an air elevate. A puny cable crane that lifts pipe and equipment up the V doorheen. Also used to raise personnel for maintenance and repairs on the top drive.
Doghouse: A puny building on the equipment floor which is used spil the driller’s office. It also serves spil a shelter for the drilling team and storage for contraptions and petite equipment.
BOP Stack: Stands for Blowout Preventer Stack. This lump of equipment is linked to the well head under the equipment floor and utilizes vertically arranged closing elements to either close off the well or control the release of fluids to and from the well bore.
Cellar: A pit around the well head which provides space for the installation of equipment at the top of the well bore such spil the BOP stack. Water and waste fluids also accumulate te the cellar for disposition.
Accumulator: A waterreservoir which holds hydraulic fluids stored under pressure by compressed nitrogen. An accumulator is used to actuate the blowout preventer.
SCR House/Top Drive: An electrical housing unit which balances and controls the energy used to power the top drive.
SCR House/Generator: An electrical housing unit ter close proximity to the generator, which balances and controls the energy used to power the equipment webpagina. Also called a breaker house.
Engine/Generator Sets: Fueled most commonly by dieseltrein, the engine converts fuel combustion into maneuverability. The maneuverability is then converted into electrical play by the generator and is used spil a power source for various drill webpagina components.
Fuel Waterreservoir: Storage tanks that hold the dieseltrein fuel used for the power system.
Water Waterreservoir: Stores water that is needed for various functions on the drill webpagina, including circulating, cementing, cooling, and cleaning.
Mud Pumps: A set of two or three trompet driven pumps that are used to stir circulating fluids on a rotary drilling equipment.
Mud System: The equipment that separates the earth cuttings coming out of the well bore and resumes the circulating fluid back to the well bore.
Mud Pit: Also known spil a reserve pit. An open excavation near the drilling equipment that holds used or waste mud and cuttings.
Shale Shakers: A series of vibing screens used to liquidate the earth cuttings from the circulating fluids from the well bore.
Mud/Gas Separator: A vessel that is affixed to the mud flow line to liquidate gas from the circulated mud when drilling through a high pressure gas zone.
Substructure: The stengel verhoging and supports on which the paal and all drilling floor equipment sit. It also provides space for well control equipment and storage by elevating drilling floor components.
Mud Come back Line: A pipe which carries the circulating drilling mud from the mud pumps to the well bore.
Gasp Manifold: A series of pipes and valves that function to control pressures experienced during a kick once the blowout preventers are closed.
Catwalk: A long, plane stengel podium where pipe is laid before it is pulled up through the V om and placed into the mousehole.
Pipe Racks with Drill Pipe: Stengel platforms placed next to the equipment near the catwalk that hold reserve drill pipe.
Company Man’s Quarters: The trailer te which the representative of the technicus of the well offices and resides while on location.
Implement Pusher’s Quarters: The trailer te which the equipment manager, also called equipment superintendent or equipment foreman, offices and resides while on location.
Equipment Palms’ Quarters: The trailer ter which the drilling team resides when off duty.
Security Station: A structure at the entrance of the drilling location staffed by personnel that ensure managed and authorized access to the webpagina and enforces posted entrance requirements.
Sound Wall: Panels which can be installed on the perimeter of a well webpagina to effectively reduce noise to the surrounding environment that is generated by drilling operations.
