After 20 years in the business, we understand each drilling program has its unique challenges. That’s why we’ve designed and upgraded our rigs with features like back-up secondary systems, centralized control systems, moving systems and safety enhancements to drill deeper, longer and more technically challenging wells.
Rig 56, Trinidad’s first 2000 HP rig added to our fleet in 2011, is no exception. Designed with both natural gas and diesel-powered engines, we’re able to adapt the rig’s power source to fit our customer’s drilling programs. Read More
For many of those in the drilling business, starting in the patch fresh out of school was a no-brainer. Some chose this life for their love of iron, some for the money and freedom, and some to be part of a long-standing family tradition.
Starting on the rig as a Floorhand was all Bill Dunbar wanted to do in 1972 – all thanks to his dad who worked for Imperial Oil in the 1950s and 60s when they operated their own drilling rigs.
This is the second post in our two-part pad drilling series.
Two weeks ago, Wayne Kuzio and a few of his Rig Managers took us through a quick crash course with pad drilling 101. This week, we’ll dive into the environmental benefits of pad drilling and its advantages to customers, crews and drilling contractors. Read More
This is the first post in Trinidad’s two-part pad drilling series.
Pad drilling is the real meal deal – a real “win-win”. According to Wayne Kuzio (Sr. Field Superintendent, industry veteran and pad drilling advocate), it has a firm place in the future of drilling.
“The benefits of pad drilling are even more important during low commodity pricing. It just makes sense from an efficiency, cost, time and environmental standpoint,” said Kuzio.
“In times like these, reducing costs and time per well is something I think we can all get onboard with.”
In this post, he and a few of his Rig Managers give us a pad drilling 101 crash course to explain how it all works. Read More
