|bell nipple||A Bell nipple is a section of large diameter pipe fitted to the top of the blowout preventers that the flow line attaches to via a side outlet, to allow the drilling fluid to flow back over the shale shakers to the mud tanks. Also an enlarged pipe at the top of a casing string that serves as a funnel to guide drilling tools into the top of a well.|
|drilling standpipe||A rigid metal conduit that provides the high-pressure pathway for drilling mud to travel approximately one-third of the way up the derrick, where it connects to a flexible high-pressure hose (kelly hose).|
|pipe doping machine||A device that is designed for easy washing and dope application of drill pipe threads and collar threads.|
|iron roughneck||An integral part of the drilling process, iron roughnecks connect and disconnect drill pipe. Whether pipe is being fed into the wellbore or it is being taken out, the iron roughneck uses a rotary table and torque wrench(es) to make up or break down pipe.|
|rotary table||A 'well drilling system' and an 'artefact' in which the torque is transferred to the drill string using rotary table and kelly.|
|slips||A physical object that consists of wedge-shaped pieces of metal loosely joined together and fitted into a bushing to support a string of pipe. The slips have gripping elements to prevent the pipe from slipping down the drilling hole.|
|top drive drilling system||A well drilling system and an artefact in which the motor which turns the drill string is connected to the upper end of the string and moves downwardly with the drill string during the drilling operation.|
