RCP, Rig Control Products

As a company RCP have been involved with the support, service and supply of oilfield equipment for well over a decade now.

Our longest serving engineers have been involved with the industry for over 25 years and can claim to have designed and implemented some of the first successful electronic drilling systems still in use today. To this day RCP continue to supply innovative and advanced equipment.

ATEX and CE approved control equipment further enhance our portfolio, including choke control consoles, pump stroke counters and mud flow transmitters.

Differentiation from other similar companies is our ability to call upon in house expertise to resolve control and instrumentation requirements quickly and effectively, always in complete control.

Without doubt, RCP are highly regarded as control systems specialists for drilling equipment.
