                  National Oilwell will provide a Drawworks Dynamic Brake
                  system. The dynamic brake will slow the Drawworks A motor from
                  full speed to some preset cathead speed within 10 to 15
                  seconds after the foot throttle is released. The power
                  generated by the freewheeling DC motor is fed into a stainless
                  steel grid resistor bank mounted out on the porch. During
                  normal operation of the Drawworks, the dynamic brake is not
                  connected. If at any time the motor speed is higher than the
                  DW throttle setting and the foot throttle is not in use, the
                  brake circuit will engage and reduce the motor speed to the
                  hand throttle setting.

              16) POWER CONTROL HOUSE
                  The Power Control House will be designed for transportation by
                  an oilfield trailer. The house size will be approximately 10'
                  W x 46' L x 10'6" H.

                  The house columns and ceiling frame will be constructed from
                  structural steel seam welded. The outside shall be fabricated
                  from twelve-gauge sheet steel. All corners are to be formed by
                  bending leaving no sheet edge exposed.

                  Three of the walls will be insulated with three-inch thick
                  polystyrene block insulation. The floor and the wall with the
                  receptacles and plugs will not be insulated. The inside
                  surface of the walls will be finished with a sandwich style
                  insulating board with aluminum sheet interior. A rubber
                  neoprene mat will run the full length of the interior aisle of
                  the House.

                  One (1) 42 circuit 120Y208 volt, 3 phase, 4 wire panel board
                  will be

                  mounted on an interior wall for lighting and other required
                  needs. Four (4) fluorescent lighting fixtures (2 40WRS) will
                  be supplied for aisle lighting. Two (2) 120 volt duplex
                  receptacles will be included. An emergency lighting fixture
                  will also be included in the center interior of the House.

                  Two (2) steel doors with panic hardware will be supplied, one
                  at each end and on opposite sides of the house. Both doors
                  shall be designed to open to the outside by pushing down on
                  the opening bar.

                  The two (2) air conditioning units will be of the split unit
                  type with the condenser and evaporator sections mounted
                  separately. Each unit will be rated at 7.5 tons. The hot air
                  generated by the SCR bridges will be discharged out the top of
                  the cubicles and contained within the dead air space between
                  the ceiling and the roof. This air will then be ducted to the
                  return air side of the evaporator sections of the units.
                  Transformers and air conditioning condenser units will be
                  mounted on a covered porch at one end of the house.

                  The incoming power connections will be located in a recessed
                  box located at the top and on one side of the house and spaced
                  approximately eight feet apart. This location is on the same
                  side of the house as the SCR line up. The receptacles for the
                  outgoing DC power and rig AC loads are to be installed in
                  panels which slant downward to relieve stress on the outgoing
                  cables, except for the receptacles located at the very bottom
                  of the plug panel, which will not be slanted downward because
                  of the physical limitations of their location. The mating
                  plugs for the receptacles will also be supplied with the
                  house.

                  The exterior of the house will be cleaned with a sweep blast
                  of sand to remove scale and oxidation. The exterior coating
                  will consist of a sub coat of primer and a topcoat of urethane
                  linear white. The interior floor will be painted ANSI gray.

              number of turns of the traveling block fastline sheave. The
              encoder tells the block speed and the SDI calculates the ROP. It
              is displayed on the flat screen TFT monitor.

              There is no need to have a 7 pen recorder. All measured parameters
              are available as trends on the drillers display. Permanent print
              out of any trend is also available at the block speed and the SDI
              calculates the ROP. It is displayed on the flat screen TFT
              monitor.

         Qty. 1 EA.
              KEMS with Automatic Drilling System
              Kinetic Energy Monitoring System (KEMS-0006). The KEMS monitors
              the load, speed and position of the traveling block and when
              required operates the drawworks brakes, clutches and motors to
              bring the traveling block to a controlled stop within preset
              limits of travel. Interfaces are included for operation of the
              drawworks auxiliary brake; main brake and clutches as well as the
              drawworks drive motor/s. During downward travel, the system
              measures the total hook load to determine a safe velocity profile
              for downward motion. As the blocks descend and speed is gained,
              the auxiliary brake is engaged to bring the block speed within the
              safe velocity profile. This process continues until the block
              comes to rest at, or just above, the bottom limit of travel.
              However, should the auxiliary brake fail to control the descent as
              requested, then the system will assume an auxiliary brake fault
              and will immediately actuate the main brake in an effort to bring
              the blocks to a controlled stop.

              When traveling upwards the system assesses upward velocity and
              hook load and, when required, will switch off the drive to the
              drawworks motors and at the same time it shall apply, momentarily,
              the Elmagco brake to bring the drawworks and traveling block
              assembly to a standstill at, or just below, the upper limit of
              travel. Just before the blocks come to a stop the main brake is
              also set to prevent any subsequent, unwanted, downward motion.

              The KEMS-0006 is a complete system hardware package and is
              supplied with all materials, required to effect its installation,
              including:

              Automatic Driller: When installed this option provides the system
              with the ability to control hook load, hence bit weight,
              automatically. In operation the system compares the actual bit
              weight to the desired bit weight releasing the drawworks brakes to
              feed off drill line. As this happens any increase in bit weight is
              compared to the corresponding movements of the drawworks drum. In
              this way the system continuously monitors the relationship between
              drawworks rotation (amount of drilling line feed) and the
              subsequent transfer of weight from the hook to the bit. The
              frequency and duration of the brake release cycle is then
              controlled to provide optimum ROP while ensuring that bit weight
              is kept at a constant level. The auto-driller does not require to
              be tuned to match formation changes and drilling rate will
              progress at the highest possible ROP.

              Pump and filter quoted separately.

         Qty. 1 EA. K-FF1081
              National Oilwell/Halco Model FS-1081 Fuel Filter System
              This filter package is a three-stage filter type. There is a
              prefilter to remove dirt, a coalescer element to form dissolved
              water into droplets and separator element to make the water
              droplets drop out of the fuel.

              PREFILTER:
              Contains a quantity of three pleated paper filter elements each
              rated to remove solids to five (5) microns. The three elements
              will hold approximately twenty pounds of dirt before time to
              change out the elements. The purpose of the prefilter is to trap
              solids or dirt before they can reach the coalescer.

              COALESCER:
              Contains a quantity of two coalescer elements and two separator
              elements. The purpose of the coalescer element is to separate the
              water from the fuel by forming the water into droplets so that the
              water will fall out of the fuel by gravity. The purpose of the
              separator element is to repel any droplets that do not fall out of
              the fuel. This tank has an automatic drain valve to let the
              separated water out. This is what is commonly referred to as
              two-stage separation. It is important to remember that even though
              the coalescer and separator elements will remove dirt, their
              primary function is to remove water. Rated to remove water to 5
              parts per million or 99.999995%.

              DIESEL FUEL TRANSFER PUMPS
              Two packages each having a Roper 2AM21 gear pumps with built in
              relief valve, rated at 35-39 GPM mounted on a base with a flexible
              coupling, OSHA coupling guard and a 3 HP, 1800RPM, explosion proof
              motor, 230-460Volts, 3 phase, 60 cycle.

              MOUNTING:
              These two filter tanks along with the two pump packages are
              mounted on a base, piped with valves for series flow through the
              tanks or to bypass the filters. The pumps will be manifold
              together so that product can flow through either pump while the
              other pump is operating. Pressure gauges are mounted on each of
              the tanks to measure pressure drop and know when to change
              filters. The system will also include an

         Qty. 1 EA. Drillers Dog House / Control Cabin
              The driller's cabin is designed to provide the drilling operators
              a safe and comfortable work environment. The cabin will be
              suitable for the required area classification. Considerations made
              include:

              Environment
              Considerations made include comfortable colors, low noise levels,
              and high automation level this environment will enhance the
              quality and the success of the drilling operations where critical
              split-second decisions are often made.

              Ergonomics
              The driller's cabin and other control panels are designed to make
              the operator able to work long shifts without stress or strain.
              The positioning of instruments and controls has been thoroughly
              evaluated with regard to frequency of use, interrelation and ease
              of operation and help reduce fatigue to the driller.

              Classification
              The driller's cabin will be rated for a Class 1 Division 2 area.
              The protection means for this housing will be accomplished by
              pressurization according to NFPA496 requirements.

              Safety
              Since most of the machinery operations are controlled from the
              driller's cabin the safety will be enhanced considerably. There
              will be two (2) escape route from the cabin. Protection bars and
              netting on the sloped windows secure operators from falling/
              moving objects. All windows are of 9/16" laminated, heat
              strengthened safety glass.

              Layout
              From the driller's cabin the operator can control most of the
              equipment used in the drilling process. Most controls used are
              included in the drillers control console and are in easy reach of
              the operators.

              The driller's cabin is located on the drill floor and is designed
              to have a clear line of sight to the operating machinery and
              people on the drill floor.

              The equipment/control panels in the driller's cabin will be placed

invoice. All quotations are subject to change without notice and to prior sale
of goods.

THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES WHICH EXTEND BEYOND THE DESCRIPTION ON THE FACE HEREOF.
THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN EXPRESSLY AND IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
WARRANTIES AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES FOR MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE DISCLAIMED.

Goods manufactured by others are sold "as is" except to the extent the
manufacturer honors any applicable warranty made by the manufacturer. Secondhand
goods are sold "as is". Leased goods, new or used, are leased "as is".

In the event any goods manufactured by Seller and furnished hereunder are found
to be defective or otherwise fail to conform to the conditions of this contract,
Seller will, at its option, either: (1) replace the goods at the delivery point
specified herein, (2) repair the goods, or (3) refund the purchase price.
Buyer's remedies with respect to goods manufactured by Seller and furnished
hereunder that are found to be defective or otherwise not in conformity with the
contract shall be limited exclusively to the right to have said goods replaced,
repaired, or to a refund of the purchase price, at Seller's option. Buyer's
remedies with respect to goods manufactured by others and furnished hereunder
that are found to be defective or otherwise not in conformity with the contract
are limited to any warranties extended and honored by the manufacturer. Buyer's
remedies are limited as aforesaid regardless of whether Buyer's claim is based
on principles of contract or tort. Claims must be made promptly following
delivery of the goods to the Buyer, but within one year from date of tender of
delivery. Seller must be given a reasonable opportunity to investigate. NEITHER
SELLER NOR THE MANUFACTURER SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT,
CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR OTHER CLAIMS FROM ANY BREACH OF CONTRACT OR TORT

forging) Seller agrees to make every effort to perform fully such work in
accordance with Buyer's specifications. Seller shall be responsible for damages

paid by the Seller, the amount thereof shall be added to and become part of the
price payable by the Buyer.

Buyer shall make such arrangements for terms of payment as Seller's treasurer
shall from time to time require. All orders are subject to the continued review
of the Seller and if, in its opinion, the financial position of the Buyer has so
changed prior to delivery as to render the Seller insecure, the Seller may
suspend production and/or refuse to make delivery pending satisfactory
modification of the terms of payment. If in the event it becomes necessary to
place the account in the hands of an attorney for collection, Buyer agrees to
pay reasonable attorney's fees incurred by the Seller. Buyer shall pay interest
of 18% per annum for all accounts after the due date; provided, however in no
event shall Buyer be required to pay any amount beyond the maximum allowed by

strike, shortage of utility, facility, material or labor, delay in
transportation, breakdown or accident, compliance with any other action taken to
carry out the intent or purpose of any law or regulation, or other causes beyond
Seller's control, Seller shall not be liable for any direct or indirect damage
or loss due to any such causes. Seller uses reasonable efforts to ship within
the time specified, but does not guarantee to do so and shall not be liable for
any damage caused by delay in delivery, irrespective of the cause of delay.

Any clause required to be included in a contract of this type by any applicable
law or administrative regulation having the effect of law shall be deemed to be
incorporated herein. It is hereby certified that the goods manufactured by
Seller are produced in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act.

No material may be returned to the Seller nor may orders be canceled or
specifications changed without first obtaining written permission of the Seller.

Administration Act of 1979 and regulations issued pursuant thereto. This
