Using cutting-edge technology and collaborative insight, Hybrid Drilling converted a traditional drilling rig into a self-sufficient, hydraulically-powered, fully-automated powerhouse. Our completion unit works independently of, or in conjunction with, conventional drill out methods such as snubbing or coiled tubing. Since our unit is fully automated, its performance, on average, is nearly twice that of a conventional workover rig reaching the same total depth (TD).
Because the equipment runs on hydraulics, there is less noise, which also means less distraction. This allows for messages to be sent and received more clearly among workers, which improves operational outcomes.
Floors are attached to the derrick framework and are suspended with chains. In addition, the rig-up and rig-down processes are simple and safe to accomplish utilizing the hydraulic mast.
The automated top drive traveling system replaces a conventional workover rig’s drawworks, brake system, and suspended blocks that lift and swivel drill pipe up and down. Instead, bales and elevators attached to the top drive are hydraulically controlled, keeping Hybrid’s workers on a more comfortable working floor level.
With operators in a central location, called the doghouse, we can monitor drill out parameters around the clock. In addition, we can control and monitor torques, WOB (weight on bits), and pressure more precisely.
Pump controls and the hydraulic choke system prevent workers from operating over high pressure lines. The Hybrid drill out process and completion unit require far less hands to perform the work, which is a proactive safety measure because exposure points are reduced.
Because our completion unit is triggered by technology and automation, our results are consistent. The unit yields a steady and smooth speed throughout the process, which allows for easier monitoring and quality control.
As part of our drill out operations, Hybrid supplies an entire completions package, including the rig, pump, BOPs (blowout preventers), and downhole equipment for each project. This takes the burden off of our clients and promotes success on the job.
