Papua New Guinea’s varied ecosystem, abundant biodiversity and native cultures necessitate a strategy that prioritizes environmental preservation at the forefront.
Nabors’ MAAC (Minimum Area AC) rig is designed specifically to meet the logistical, environmental, geographical conditionals of Papua New Guinea and to drill safely and efficiently. Designed to deliver maximum drilling performance, the MAAC rig further enhances drilling efficiencies and reduces flat time.
Engineered to operate in a rainforest in an environmentally sensitive region of Papua New Guinea, the rig’s mud tanks are enclosed to prevent any rainwater contamination. This MAAC rig is designed to protect the area and catch any run-off.
This Nabors rig is developed and crafted specifically to meet customer requirements and is modular for moving across different terrains and completely self-contained to protect a sensitive environment. It emulates the benefits of offshore technology in an onshore environment by utilizing integrated substructure systems for primary mud processing and well control systems, as well as the capability of a built-in rig moving system.
Equipped for Managed Pressure Drilling, this rig can maintain constant bottomhole pressure via continuous mud circulation while making connections. The MAAC rig features numerous automated features, including performance tools ROCKit® and REVit®, Canrig’s wireless TesTORK® system , PC 4000, TM-120 and Casing Drive System™ which combined together enables to make drilling operations safer, reliable and cost-effective.
