Environment

Due to our rig size, efficiency, and capabilities, we leave a smaller carbon footprint on our environment. With fewer third party services, we are 100% self-contained. By welding the entire bottom floor to its matting, and adding removal tray inserts, Prostar rigs completely contain engine and hydraulic spills. We’ve also built a pump on our service rigs that eliminate the use of trucks with diesel burning engines, as compared to conventional service rig packages. Prostar’s five ton and service rig are certified clean idle engines.

Our current spill prevention equipment:

Rig Carrier & Hydraulic System Full rig mat containment system with removable trays.
Rig Tank Large garage mat style drip tray. Covers entire area of tank valve and connections.
Pumping System Pumping system is built integrally through the rig, eliminating most connections.

4-inch suction connections over drip trays.

Fueling Drip trays placed under all fuel fill spots.
Removing/Opening Valves Drip trays and steel pails (with bonding cables)
Catwalk and Pipe racks Large garage mat style drip tray. Covers both ends of racked pipe.

 

Every day we strive to create more value for our clients than we take in return.

 

Environmental

To fully contain any engine or hydraulic spills, Prostar has welded the entire bottom of its matting and added removable tray inserts. To reduce emissions, Prostar has built its pump on the service rig, which eliminates an entire truck with a diesel burning engine. Prostar’s 5 ton and service rig are also certified clean idle engines.

 

Service and Support

Certified Rig Technicians are available 24/7 for rapid response to any unforeseen issues with equipment. Prostar’s management conducts site visits weekly to ensure the crews and clients receive proper and swift support.

 

Electronic Data Capturing System

The rig is equipped with a PLC system, which is a real-time monitoring system that relays pertinent data to the rig manager and client site representative. The system has its own WIFI to relay data, and can supply the data requirements listed below:

  • Pump pressure and rate and return flow pressure and rate
  • Wellhead pressure
  • Pull (push) down force
  • Tubing make up torque
  • Tank volumes
  • Hook-load
  • Tripping speeds

Service Technicians have remote access into the system to troubleshoot rig issues or program changes. If a system has a problem, a technician can ask the crew questions and the problem can be pinpointed within a few hours. If a technician needs to be dispatched, they are normally dispatched that day. Operator’s cab houses controls: the rig’s carriage, BOPs, bails, elevators, slips, tongs, winches, pumping system, engine shut off, catwalk, top drive, and “wobble” rotating features. During “pipe tripping” tasks, the Assistant Operator (conventionally called a Derrickhand) has line of site and controls over the catwalk and tongs. The Operator (conventionally called a Driller) has line of site and control over the carriage, bails, elevators and slips. The cab is fully enclosed with doors on either side and is heated to protect the controls and workers from the elements. Each side of the driller’s cab has windows and the front window, which extends to the roof for ergonomic consideration, and is equipped with air actuated wipers.

Prostar will train client staff on how to use the software systems to monitor “real time” data and request reports.
