Efficiently Handling Pipe.

Ashton is working with NOV to develop streamlined Driller's cabin instrumentation screens that allow the drill crew to trip pipe, build stands offline, and run casing efficiently and almost entirely hands-free. This feature includes zone-management indicators alerting the driller or AD when the activity is about to switch to their machine, ensuring they are prepared and ready to go. On the CJ46 and CJ50 rigs, we have also developed a system to run stands of drill pipe or casing from the cantilever pipe decks.
