This week on the blog, we’re showcasing Rig 452 in our Canadian fleet. Formerly CanElson Rig 102, the newly upgraded 1,500 HP AC Pad Triple and its crews recently headed out to the Duvernay field in Alberta, Canada.
Rig 452’s fresh Trinidad teal paint job isn’t the only change its undergone since our acquisition of CanElson Drilling in 2015. The rig now has a 500 ton top drive, a 7,500 PSI circulating system, and a moving system complete with a scalping tank and festoon system capable of walking with full setback.

We’re always listening to our customers and our boots-on-the-ground teams in the field to find mechanical, structural and electrical solutions to drill tomorrow’s toughest wells.
Learn more about the upgrades we made to our fleet in 2017 to ensure our rigs are equipped to get the job done safely and efficiently, day in and day out.
This week on the blog, a peek at Rig 38, the 333,600 daN pad triple, currently drilling near Fox Creek, Alberta, Canada.

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. Continue reading
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.”
Kuzio is responsible for a number of rigs in our Canadian fleet, including Rigs 37 and 38, currently drilling on a pad near Fox Creek, Alberta (pictured below).
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. Continue reading
This week on the blog, a peek at Rig 57, one of our lean mean drillin’ machines in Canada. Pack your bags, boys – the backyard is movin’ too!
Did you know Rig 57 also has a two-storey combination building that walks separately from the substructure?
