National Oilwell Varco, a leading provider for the worldwide oil and gas industry, provides not only traditional pipe handling solutions for any application, but also technological innovations for the movement and storage of tubular from the well center to the pipe rack. From drill pipe and collars to BHA, casing and marine risers, National Oilwell Varco pipe handling systems can manipulate and connect any type of tubular that may be encountered. In the past, manual pipe handling has been dangerous and associated with most accidents incurred on the rig. But, with the innovations introduced by National Oilwell Varco to mechanize the handling of pipe, these risks are significantly reduced. These new pipe handling techniques not only reduce costs and are more economically desirable, they are, more importantly, safer for personnel.
