• Kick Monitoring Display

    The RigSense™ Kick Monitoring Display system provides a precise overview of surface and downhole conditions, enabling rig personnel to make accurate and informed decisions when responding to a kick or fluid loss situation.

    As part of NOV's RigSense information system, the Kick Monitoring Display feature improves monitoring efficiency by reducing the amount of information required to detect a kick and grouping the data for faster notification of potentially hazardous situations. Using a combination of specialized charting screens and customizable alarm settings, you can easily visualize data and quickly identify well-control issues that would otherwise go undetected. 

     If a potential kick is identified, the Kick Monitoring Display system will trigger a RigSense system wide global alarm-designed with distinct visual and audio characteristics that separate it from all other RigSense alarms-and generates a notification dialog that provides rig personnel with information relevant to the well-control event. Global alarms are also logged for record keeping and future analysis of the event.
