Roughneck Training Series Part V: Care and Handling of Rotary Slips
Drilling a well means moving thousands of feet of pipe in and out of the hole. The rotary slips are a relatively small but heavy-duty piece of equipment that crew must use properly, or it adds up to lost drilling time and lots of money. This video shows floorhands how to properly care for and handle drill pipe, drill collar, and casing slips. Safety clamps are also covered. 1999, 25 minutes, video production.
