NOV's mousehole accelerates drilling and tripping operations by supporting stand building of drill pipe, drill collar and other kinds of tubulars with an OD of up to 22". 

NOV's mousehole accelerates drilling and tripping operations by supporting stand building of drill pipe, drill collar and other kinds of tubulars with an OD of up to 22".  It is optimal for “Range II” and “Range III” pipe and it can accommodate shorter pipe with a movable “rabbit” that travels (“runs”) vertically to position tubulars into the correct stick-up height.  The sturdily designed mousehole can endure the harshest offshore environments and can be controlled remotely from the driller's cabin in Zone 1 hazardous areas.  NOV provides complete safety systems that include shock dampening and load and position monitoring, which increases safety in incidents where pipe is accidentally dropped.
