The H&P Drilling Rig Line of Flex Rigs

Click The Picture Above To View This Video On

Helmerich and Payne has a new, state-of-the-art drilling rig that is being used by Williams in the Piceance Basin in western Colorado. News on 6 business reporter Steve Berg went to Colorado to see how this remote mountain region is good news for Tulsa.

Williams drilling superintendent Scott Brady: "This is H & P, Helmerich and Payne rig number 273." In this beautiful corner of western Colorado, there is a beauty by oil and gas standards, the Helmerich and Payne flex rig. "Probably the state-of-the-art rig in the Rocky Mountains today." Scott Brady says this one has only been in operation for 3 weeks. They say it works faster, cheaper, and safer than any rig in the world.

Part of the secret is automation. With Helmerich and Payne's trademarked V-boom and knuckle-boom system is almost hands-free. In the past, workers had to manually drag and maneuver 500+ pound pipes on the rig. "That's where fingers get mashed and toes get smashed and people get knocked down and arms get broken and with this thing, all that just completely goes away."

The flex rig's enclosed cabin has advanced computer controls that save wear-and-tear on drill bits and save the precious time of replacing drill bits. The entire rig can also slide on skids, so it can move and start drilling new wells, up to 22 of them, while the ones right next to it can immediately be put into production. "It makes your operation a much more efficient operation where you can actually be completing and selling gas on the same location that you're still drilling wells."

The gray-colored metal is the skids that the entire rig slides on. This particular rig can move back and forth and from side to side.

Helmerich and Payne designed the rig when gas prices were low and they say nobody was doing research. Helmerich and Payne stock promptly dropped on Wall Street. Doug Fears with Helmerich and Payne: "They were perplexed because at the time, the energy business was not doing well, there was an overcapacity of rigs, but we knew this time would come."

Now gas prices are high, companies want to drill again, and they're the only ones with the new technology companies want. Helmerich and Payne's stock price has tripled in the past 2 years.

And definitely not to be overlooked is Williams. Once nearly bankrupt, the now-robust company is putting $1-billion into new gas exploration. Kelly Swan with Williams “3 years ago we had one drilling rig out here and now here we are today with more than 20. By the end of the year, we'll have 25 rigs out here."

Surprisingly, it's the first time the two Tulsa companies have teamed up, but they're making the most of it. Williams has four of the Helmerich and Payne flex rigs. Six more will be added to Piceance Basin this year.

truTV’s Thrilling New Original Series BLACK GOLD

Digs into the High-Stakes World of Texas Oil Drilling

Roughnecks Risk Life and Limb to Tap Into America’s Most Crucial Energy Resource

Gripping Series about Life on an Oil Rig Premieres Wednesday, June 18, 10 p.m. (ET)

From the creator of Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers comes one of the most explosive, relevant and thrilling original series of the year. truTV’s BLACK GOLD, premiering Wednesday, June 18, at 10 p.m. (ET), follows the high-stakes world of drilling for oil in west Texas. With the ever-increasing tensions from rising gas prices and dependency on foreign oil, BLACK GOLD goes inside the world of men who risk their lives drilling for American crude. It’s a multimillion-dollar race to tap into the nation’s last remaining reserves, and BLACK GOLD presents an unfiltered look at lives on the line.

It costs oil men millions of dollars to drill two miles into the Earth in search of crude, and every second can lead to boom or bust. Each one-hour episode of BLACK GOLD focuses on oil rigs and the men who hope to strike it rich. With only 50 days to successfully locate and retrieve the precious commodity, the roughnecks, as they are called on the rig, endure exhausting, dangerous work demands and face losing something more valuable than the money of the oil men. They risk losing their own lives. It all adds up to big risk, big reward, big characters and most of all big business.

BLACK GOLD gives viewers front-row seats to three different rigs – Longhorn, Viking and Big Dog – funded by two oilmen who have risked their fortunes in hopes of striking it big and keeping the drill bits turning. In the end is the moment of truth – was it all worth it? It’s a multi-million dollar roll of the dice. With enough time to drill only three wells, they have to contend not only with such elements as scorching heat and sudden lightning storms, but also the danger of working on the rig itself, where anything can go wrong at any moment and at every turn.

Each rig is led by the driller, who takes care of everything from mechanical issues to manpower problems. The most challenging part for drillers is finding men brave enough to lift and move tons of iron and trying to ensure that these hard-partying roughnecks will actually show up for work. For many drillers, most of their time is spent trying to teach their most inexperienced roughnecks – or worms as they’re called in the oilfield – how to survive on a rig and how to avoid getting hit with iron pipes flying around. Drillers know that just one wrong move can cost a man his finger, his arm or even his life.

The oil boom has brought the 60-year-old Longhorn rig out of retirement. Gerald, an old-school driller, with 32 years of experience and a hand missing half a thumb from a long ago mishap, leads the rig and expects a lot from his crew. He isn’t afraid to tell them when they’re not cutting it.

Just 500 yards away is the brand-new Viking rig, where the technology and the men in charge are a very different sort. While Gerald, a tough leader who has only nine toes left, barks at his roughnecks, Viking driller Wayne treats his young crew like his family. Both Longhorn and Viking are drilling for oilman Mike LaMonica and his upstart company, ExL Petroleum. Mike’s eager to cash in on the high prices being paid for crude, but if this play doesn’t work out, it could put them under.

The final rig is the Big Dog. Its name fits since it’s larger than the competition and unlike the other rigs, Big Dog driller Tim, does not have decades of experience. Big Dog is drilling

for local legend Autry Stephens, who is one of the most successful independent

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
