Trinidad’s rigs stand out. Literally. Trinidad Rig 58, pictured here, is nearly 60-metres high and is one of the largest rigs in North America. But our strength as a drilling contractor is not just about size. It’s about the performance of our rigs in the field.
1. We have a skilled team
“Trinidad Drilling has an uncanny ability to bring on and train some of the best crews in the Western Sedimentary Basin,” said Mitton, who has worked both in the field and on the sales and marketing side of the drilling business.
Trinidad’s company-wide training program, T.E.S.T. (Trinidad Essential Skills Training), helps ensure these talented people are always learning the skills they need to keep rigs performing safely while advancing their careers.
2. We take care of our people
Our rigs are some of the most active in the industry, and they’re also some of the safest.
“Trinidad has worked around the clock to ensure its workers are trained properly and make it home safe to their families,” Mitton explained. “When there is an incident, Trinidad does everything in its power to take the correct steps and measures to ensure it does not happen again or to any others.”
3. We design and build technically advanced rigs
Trinidad has its own in-house design and manufacturing division, which has a reputation for utilizing new technologies – such as automation and centralized control systems – to build top-performing rigs.
“Trinidad has been a leading-edge company in building some of the most advanced equipment and some of the most ‘fit for purpose’ rigs in Canada,” Mitton said. “Trinidad has the ability to envision and build exactly what the client is looking for and exceed their expectations.”
4. We take care of our equipment
Mitton, who has been in the industry for 11 years, pointed out that Trinidad is committed to maintaining and upgrading equipment to ensure it’s safe and performing its best.
5. We know how to run safe, efficient rigs
For rig crews to perform in the field, they need a strong team supporting them away from the field. Mitton explained that leadership from Trinidad’s knowledgeable operations team helps Trinidad “stand above the competition.”
“What is important for the customer is that they drill their wells efficiently, effectively and safely to allow them to evolve their areas/plays in Canada,” said Mitton. “Trinidad allows clients to do this, while being driven by its safety morals and programs, training and operational excellence.”
