Land Rigs

Monitor Systems Engineering has been designing, manufacturing and commissioning automated control systems for the offshore and onshore (land rig) global oil & gas industry for many years.

Land Rigs: Monitor systems undertake on location surveys, systems repair, upgrade, design, and manufacture.

Upon completion of a survey, our technical engineers issue a full and detailed report, classifying the deficiencies and problems with the system, together with a full technical proposal outlining how the system could be repaired, upgraded or replaced. Our technical survey gives you a complete picture regarding the current operation, condition and integrity of your Land Rig system and associated equipment.

Oil and natural gas Land Rigs are used not only to identify geologic reservoirs but also to create holes that allow the extraction of oil or natural gas from those reservoirs. Primarily in onshore oil and gas fields once a well has been drilled, the Land Rig will be moved off of the well and a service rig (a smaller rig) that is purpose-built for completions will be moved on to the well to get the well on line. This frees up the Land Rig to drill another hole and streamlines the operation as well as allowing for specialization of certain services, i.e., completions vs drilling.

General: A Land Rig or Drilling Rig is a machine that creates holes in the earth sub-surface. Land Rigs can be massive structures housing equipment used to drill water wells, oil wells, or natural gas extraction wells, or they can be small enough to be moved manually by one person and such are called augers. Land Rigs can sample sub-surface mineral deposits, test rock, soil and groundwater physical properties, and also can be used to install sub-surface fabrications, such as underground utilities, instrumentation, tunnels or wells.
