Drilling Rig

Author larryjohnny (7 months)
wow that looks super dangerous.. crazy job!

Author Deoblo61369 (1 year)
so I have a few questions on the drilling aspect. im going to school to
become a petroleum geologist not a derrick hand so, what is going on with
the shoe that is being put in when connecting the pipes? also what's with
the chain being wrapped around the pipe?

Reminds me of when I was Ruff necking in northern AB. It was hard work but
at the time pay was good, food was good, beer was good and the body got
into tip top shape. Can be very miserable work though especially when the
weather and other workers don't co-operate. A great experience overall

The key is the rope tail on the end of the chain. When I was a chain hand I
had one fall off, and the driller didn't want to stop to affix a new one. I
threw that chain exactly twice without a tail, and got whacked like a
red-headed step child by the end of it both times. Uh, no. I walked off the
floor until the driller came to his senses. Duh.

@MrDriller666 What kind of "ching-lish" is this? Is this how the Yankees
talk south of the border?

Author shagger67 (4 years)
@hiltzie you mean to say the guy running the spinning chain had a year in?
caught all his wraps good that time!

Nice connection hands!

@MrDriller666 You're proof of how fucking stupid someone can be and work
their way up in the oilfield. I worked in the oilfield and on the rigs,
it's a miserable lifestyle, you piss away the short existence we have on
this earth on a lease then off to camp or maybe a hotel. Everybody's loaded
and doing rails or smoking a crack pipe on the way back from lease. Your
balls deep in mud and freezing cold while getting shouted at by a Push with
a small dick and a big truck. Now I have an awesome job!

I love throwin chain when I have a good crew. There is no technology that
can replace a good driller and his hands. Get er in tha hole hands. Good
job guys...I'm a West Texas hand and it's not rare to use the chain. Alot
of drillers that I've worked for would rather me throw the chain than use
the Kelley Spinners.

Author Jason Ball (2 years)
Other then the slips being to close to the hole.. great fucking job!

Author Kimberley Mintenko Baker (2 years)
just to bad to see that it takes that many raps to spin it in

Author 454jags (5 years)
Isn't this done via electronically? i mean nowadays a person can do those
things from a control room with a joy stick well at least that is what our
drilling instructor told us. did the guy used the chain for brakes to
create friction on the drill pipe?

Author beefshake (4 years)
Cool video and all, and I'm not in drilling, but to a 'fresh pair of eyes'
as they say, it doesn't look very ergonomic, and in general looks pretty
damn unsafe! Must be hard on the body after only a couple of years. Anyway,
much respect to anyone who works hard and loves what they do!

You r right, PD 174

Author a2zhandi (3 years)
That looks fun. I drilled 6" production blast holes underground for 5
years. Very similar to this. Everything is based on the same principle.
Always wanted to work on an oil rig.

They ain]t seen shit if they never worked for Ty Cooper in Oklahoma!!!!!!!!!

Author magprob (4 years)
There's no worm. He got his head caught in the chain and the driller hit
the gas. End of the worm. When I worked as a Roughneck up in Wyoming back
in the 70's, this long hair hippie dude got his hair caught in the chain
and the driller let 'er rip It pulled off his head. Another guy on the rig
told me he walked almost to the dog house before he collapsed. Said it
totally freaked everyone out.

Would be better to use rope to make the connection, Would be not so
dangerous. Here in Brazil, we use power tongs to do it.
