A simple separator vessel used to remove free or entrained gas F/ the mud circulated in the wellbore. It is typically comprises a vessel containing a series of baffles with a liquid exit on the bottom & a gas-vent line at the top of the vessel. It was named poor boy degasser because its operation is simple & there is no technology or electrical equipment are used. #koc #aramco #pdo #slb #schlumberger #halliburton #bakerhughes #drilling #oilfield #oil #engineering #toolpusher #companyman

spring ball -or- flapper type check valve installed below bit sub and above bit used to prevent mud and cuttings flowing back up the drill-string. #oil #oilfield #drilling #rig #toolpusher #koc #aramco #slb #schlumberger #halliburton #bakerhughes #companyman

FOSV: A manual valve usually installed on DP after a kick occurs when the kelly is not in use. It usually contains a movable ball and when in one position allows flow through a hole in the ball, but after turning 90°, shuts off flow completely. Rotating the ball is performed with a wrench (see the L-bar on the left picture) kept on the rig floor & accessible to the rig crew. This has the advantage that wireline tools can be passed through them. #FOSV #VALVE #koc #aramco #slb #schlumberger #halliburton #bakerhughes #ge #oilfield #drilling #drillingrig #toolpusher #companyman #engineering

Deepest Hole Ever Today, the deepest hole ever created by mankind lies beneath the tower on Russia’s Kola Peninsula, near the Norwegian border at about the same latitude as Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. And It is not oil or gas that is being sought with the Kola well, but an understanding of the nature of the earth’s crust. In 1962, a drilling effort was led by the USSR’s Interdepartmental Scientific Council for the Study of the Earth’s Interior and Superdeep Drilling, which spent years preparing for the historic project. It was started in parallel to the Space Race, a period of intense competition between the U.S. and U.S.S.R. The survey to find a suitable drill site was completed in 1965 when project leaders decided to drill on the Kola Peninsula in the north-west portion of the Soviet Union. After five more years of construction and preparations, the drill began on 24 May 1970 using the Uralmash-4E, and later the Uralmash-15000 series drilling rig. When drilling stopped in 1994, the hole was over seven miles deep, making it by far the deepest hole ever drilled by humankind. But even at that depth, the Kola project only penetrated into a fraction of the Earth’s continental crust, which ranges from twelve to fifty miles thick. #drilling #rig #oilfield #operation #engineering #contractor #shell #bp #chevron #koc #aramco #toolpusher #floorman #bit #BHA #russia
