This is one of the best rig component illustrations which show you many components of the rig with some useful descriptions.
In next few days, we will pass 2014 and start a new journey in 2015. For this year, we would like to make a special oilfield calendar 2015 for everybody. There are a total of 12 months with different themes and you click on each image to download the big files. You can set each photo on your computer screen.
Many people works on the oil rigs both offshore and onshore operation and a lot of people may get bored with the rig. Therefore we would like to share some spectacular drilling rig images. There are various rig types as land rig, shallow water rig, offshore deepwater rig, etc at various environment. At least, we wish these photos would inspire you 🙂
Please feel free to share with your friends and colleagues.
This is bad news ” Deepsea Aberdeen Sank at the DSME shipyard in South Korea on Saturday 28-Dec-13.

How do you get an F-104 for a yard art display?!
The site is near the Oak Creek Bridge on the St. Michael’s Road, on the eastern shore of Maryland (down the road from Delaware). The folks who own the property always have eye-catching displays celebrating various holidays through the year.. This year they have certainly outdone themselves!
