Fast-moving rig

Maverick fast-moving rig in the field

Meet the demands of high-volume, quick-turnaround drilling operations

The Maverick fast-moving rig combines easy and fast rig-up and rig-down with a high level of structural strength. Able to handle the harsh challenges of high-volume horizontal drilling and move quickly, the Maverick rig has a proven track record of enhancing drilling efficiency in some of the world's most demanding pad drilling applications. The mast and substructure is available in multiple sizes for a wide range of drilling applications.

The mast and substructure can be readily transported with the top drive in the mast, reducing rig-up time and equipment handling damage. Other features include

  • craneless mast and substructure rig-up
  • advanced hydraulics for mechanized rig-up and enhanced crew safety
  • mast-raising cylinders for raising the substructure and mast
  • built-in drill floor fluid containment
  • transportation of top drive in the middle section and the traveling block in the mast crown section
  • seamless integration with the Lift & Slide walking system to provide "rig walking" capability
  • ability to rotate using just a Lift & Slide system.

The Maverick rig mast and substructure can be outfitted with Cameron drilling equipment packages and M-I SWACO solids control, cuttings management, and fluids processing equipment.
