Oil Drill Rigs for Cold Wheather applications

08/29/2009 3:24 AM

I was told by a friend in Canada that the U.S. gave up making cold weather dirll rigs, and now there is a three year waiting list. He also said that Canadian oil companies get priority on drill rig orders. How can we drill in eastern Montana or North Dakota with a three lead time?

Do your drilling and well completion between April and October???

There is plenty of drilling equipment on the ground around the US ready to go. No need for new drilling equipment right now.

Buy a used Canadian Rig and refit it. Lots of them in Alberta. Try this website, they will have what you need.

It is the largest detonation flame arrester in the world that I designed for Rohm & Hass. I have 5, soon to be 6 patents on such devices.

Congratulation!

It seems to work as I don't see any burn marks on your face...

What are the applications?

Detonation Flame Arresters (DFAs) are used to stop explosions in pipe lines regardless of the magnitude of the explosion. Where ever you see a flair stack at a refinery, marine terminal, trucking terminal, gas plant and any place that a gas is being flared off or incinerated you will find a DFA. My patents are used all over the world since 1989. They protect property and lives. I spent many years designing and testing DFAs (blowing stuff up), it is a great job. I filed my first patent in Calgary, Alta and licensed the technology and eventually sold it to an American company. I have been living in the US ever since. (I married a Texan girl and she does not like the cold).

The equipment for sale at http://intercontinentaloilfieldsales.com is both new and used and North American made, which means it could have been made in either Canada or the US.
