Mouse Hole

Cased opening located on the side of the rig floor opposite to the drillers’ station. This cased hole extends downward from the rig floor. This is used to store a joint of drillpipe after it has been picked up from the pipe rack so that it is ready to be picked up and added to the drillstring in the hole. (see Rathole)
