The Sparta Drilling System (SDS) is a safe, highly efficient, fast moving rig designed for well programs where drilling time is minimal and fast efficient rig moves are essential. This flexible modular design is capable of rigging up the V-Door in either the X or Y axis position from well to well, meeting the strictest DOT load limitations.
The SDS combines two industry proven structure technologies, a vertically erecting mast and the hydraulic winch raised parallelogram substructure. The free standing mast can be supplied in Range 2 doubles or triples. The 1000hp triples and doubles masts are designed to transport as a single load with the traveling block and top drive. The 1500hp mast transports in two loads, the top drive in the lower section and the traveling block / drill line spooler in the intermediate and upper section.
