It must also pull the drill pipe out of the hole for drill bit changes and run pipe back into the hole. The rig is really a giant crane for lifting and lowering drill pipe, with a rotary table to rotate the pipe. That is why it is called a rotary rig. A 46 Chapter Four ancient method known as the cable tool rig is not used on deep or high pressure wells and will rarely be used any more, except to hold a lease until a rotary rig becomes available. The drilling rig must be able to perform certain secondary functions such as circulating drilling fluid to clean the wellbore and support the weight of the drill string so that the weight on the bit can be controlled.
