• Working in Environmentally Sensitive Areas

    As many of NOV’s customers work in environmentally sensitive areas, it is necessary for the supplied products to meet high standards to protect the areas in which they are used. NOV has developed specific well control technologies to eliminate the need for hydraulic connections powered by diesel engines when in use by other companies for off-shore drilling. Also, NOV provides full closed-loop systems, including solids control equipment, dewatering, water treatment, and power generators, when providing products to customers operating in sensitive areas on land. For example, these systems are in place in parts of Bolivia and in the Situche jungle area of Peru to aid with drill cuttings treatment and management. NOV is constantly working to identify environmentally sensitive areas like these in order to provide the proper technology to protect these locations.
