Bentec Rig Walking System


Bentec’s Rig Walking System provides a solution for reducing rig-moving times on multi-well applications. The move of the complete rig to the next well thus requires less cranes and manpower.

Compatible with a wide range of rig designs, our Rig Walking System can be adapted to both existing and new-built rigs. It consists of four units, which are secured directly to the substructure.

The lift and slide system is operated by hydraulic cylinders to move the rig – including drill floor equipment and full setback –to the desired position step by step. The Bentec Rig Walking System features a reliable and robust design “Made in Germany” and is ideal for drilling rigs on pad drilling or cluster well operations.

The system is controlled via a remote control console and can be operated with the existing rig hydraulic power unit. If required, a separate hydraulic power unit is also available.The Bentec Rig Walking System complies with the latest European and international standards, maintaining highest levels of HSE.
