On February 24, 2008, the first artificial island modular rig in China spud in successfully in Jidong Nanbu No.1 Oilfield.
TRACK MODULAR RIG SURROUND THE ARTIFICIAL ISLAND IN THE EAST OF HEBEI PROVINCE Nanbu oil field, in the east of Hebei province, is the biggest one found in the zone near the sea. The Artificial Island Project, located in field no.1, plans to drill 392 wells. The module made by BOMCO can move along the 12m surround the island track, and that is the platform for high efficiency drilling for oil and gas. The rig can do the cluster slant well drilling, long distance moving well drilling, horizontal well drilling at the same time, and meet the high efficiency drilling requirement of the field.
The artificial island modular rig mainly includes five parts: main module, power control module, circulating module, cementing module, and fixing modules. The rig is designed to move along the track, and it only takes 15 minutes to move from one well to another.
