Dropsafe Nets Installed on Patterson UTI Fleet

Dropsafe nets is the standard in the onshore and offshore Oil and Gas Sectors for decreasing the risks associated with dropped objects.  GESCO the exclusive distributor of Dropsafe products in North America has experienced huge success with major Land Drilling Contractors, resulting in the installation of Dropsafe Nets on Land Rig fleets.

GESCO is a specialty electrical distributor for both Offshore and Onshore Drilling Contractors, catering to their unique and special requirements. They distribute four main industrial lighting brands (Rig-a-Lite, Dialight, Crouse-Hinds and Federal Lights) and supply Dropsafe Nets as a bundling package consolidating customer ordering processes whilst providing an instant safety solution with no additional tools required.

Dropped Objects continue to pose significant risks for crews working on critical areas of the rig, particularly under the derrick (mast) and the drill floor area. Patterson UTI Drilling implemented Dropsafe Nets on their entire rig fleet (96 rigs in total) including both operating rigs and new builds.

Patterson-UTI Drilling Company LLC and its subsidiaries operate land based drilling rigs primarily in oil and natural gas producing regions of the continental United States, Alaska, and western and northern Canada.

Patterson UTI takes Dropped Objects prevention seriously, ensuring all fixtures are safely secured as part of their overall Dropped Objects Prevention Program.
