Baku Well Service, LLC; Rig 3


This is a slick little pulling unit. It appears incapable of getting stuck in wet conditions, which is really cool. The mast is raised hydraulically and the rig operator does not have to even get out of the cab to pull rods. Hopefully it is heated because Azerbaijani temperatures can fall to a balmy 35 degrees below zero in the winter. In that sort of weather the poor bastards wrenching and tailing out rods can then only rely heavily on copious amounts of anti-freeze (vodka) to keep warm.

I've been around some Russians and those dudes can drink that stuff aaaall day long.

Nostrovia !
