The group recently completed a racking platform upgrade for a domestic drilling contractor operating in the Permian Basin. This overhaul included increasing racking capacity from 200 stands to 264 stands of 5 in. drill pipe. (25,000 ft at 95 ft per stand) also accommodates 5-1/2 in. drill pipe at reduced capacity. The modification consisted of widening the racking platform by approximately 3 ft., replacement “knee” braces, extending the ladder access landing, supplying new rake fingers for both drill pipe sizes, and increased the drill floor setback area for the increased racking capacity.
