Scoping MCLRS™

Design and Features:
  • Eliminates control lines in the tong area from overhead sheaves and running through slips
  • Simple and efficient rig-up/rig-down process that requires only three lifts and can be done in two and a half hours or less
  • Standard components make the MCLRS unit portable and versatile enough to fit most rigs
  • Guides can be positioned so that control line clamping can be performed from up to four sides 90° apart from each other
  • Efficiency is optimized as the tongs are operated remotely on the top platform
  • The unit’s small footprint maximizes rig floor space to increase efficiency of tubing running operations
