• The oilfield is changing. The shale boom in North America has driven a massive shift toward horizontal unconventional wells with longer, more challenging laterals, and drilling contractors that have differentiated themselves with better equipment and higher performing rigs have a distinct advantage over those that have not.

    To meet the needs of drilling demanding higher horsepower, larger hookload and setback capacities, and pad drilling capabilities, we’ve designed the new Ideal™ 2000 land rig from the ground up. The new design is highly configurable and equipped with a suite of the latest NOV equipment. Additionally, the Ideal 2000 is an automation-enabled rig, meaning the NOVOS™ platform and custom drilling software applications can easily be added to further enhance performance.

    To learn more about how we're changing the landscape for drilling rigs in North America, read our article on the Ideal 2000 in the November issue of E&P here.
