Drilling for oil is a complex process that requires a wide range of different oilfield equipment. While every operation uses a different combination of equipment, most operations use the following types of oilfield equipment to effectively drill for oil.
- Drilling rigs—Drilling rigs do most of the work because they are responsible for burrowing deep into the subsurface of the earth to extract natural gas and crude oil. Most oil rigs can perform a variety of tasks, from sampling subsurface mineral deposits to tunneling and drilling. These rigs are usually complex and consist of a hoisting system, a driving group, a circulating system of pumps, control components, and more.
- Specialized equipment—Some of the more specialized oilfield equipment you can find on a jobsite includes premix tanks, pump containments, oilfield trucks and machinery, mud vacuums, manifolds, pipe racks, hose and bit houses, catch tanks, rig components, and much, much more.
- Lighting structures—Many oilfield sites run 24 hours a day in all types of weather conditions. Because of this, lighting is incredibly important. Proper lighting reduces trips and slips and helps the oilfield continue its operation around the clock.
