Transporting and rigging up the equipment is the first step in well servicing operations. After these steps, servicing activities commence.
Hazards may be related to the following:
After the drilling rig is removed, the well site is cleaned and re-leveled for the service rig. A workover rig is driven or transported to the site and positioned at the well.
Before rigging up, guyline anchors are set into the ground and pull tested. The service rig is then spotted over the well.
The truck- or trailer-mounted rig is stabilized and leveled by manual or hydraulic jacks. All guy lines are uncoiled and laid out to remove kinks or knots.
The mast is readied for raising, then raised and guyed into place. The derrick emergency escape device is rigged up and the work platform is readied for service operations. (See Rigging Up)
The work area is prepared by setting up all relevant equipment for the job, including the derrick emergency escape device.
