Our testers will ask several questions pertaining to the equipment you have on location.  You should be ready to Cross check with our testers the wellhead size, BOP  and pressure control equipment size and the pressure ratings for all.  Common items in question are size and pressure rating for mudlines,kelleys,  TOP DRIVE valves and IBOPS.

The tester will need to know the minimum and maximum pressures and length of time to test each piece of equipment as outlined in the drilling program per the company mans instruction.

No problem.  As company men move from rig to rig, it can take some time to become familiar with  the new rig.  Chances are our salesmen know what you will require on that rig and can help you make a decision.  Please call your salesman or have our Dispatchers get you in touch with a salesman so you can discuss any question you may have.
