Project Overview

Drill derrick to be partially dismantled to allow for passing under bridges.


  • Alignment surveys undertaken on dolly rails, crown block and rotary table
  • Surveys carried out throughout reassembly to allow for close tolerance alignment

Benefits delivered by Scopus:

  • Ability to reset drill track alignment – alignment was not compromised by disassembly
  • Drill derrick able to function quicker
  • This method was replicated globally in Cameroon, Nigeria, Singapore, Brazil and many other countries
