Rig word of the day: mast — #RigSpeak101

 

Drilling rig mast

The mast is one of the most recognizable parts of a drilling rig. Standing up to 50 metres (164 feet) high, our team uses QT100 advanced steel on our masts to make more space for equipment and reduce the overall weight of the structure.

Not to be confused with four-sided derricks, masts are three-sided structures with an open face.
