Service Rigs

A service rig is a very versatile piece of equipment that is used from the beginning to the end of an oil or natural gas well's entire life. After a new oil or natural gas well is drilled, a service rig is used to complete the well by laying down pipe through a process called well completion. Throughout the life of the oil or natural gas well, maintenance and stimulation work, known as workovers, are required to ensure the oil or natural gas well is flowing efficient and effectively. At the end of a well's life when all of the recoverable oil or natural gas has been pumped, the well needs to be properly disposed of; a process called abandonment or well decommissioning. On average a service rig will perform services on the same oil well seven or eight times before the well gets abandoned.

CWC's service rigs are designed for quick, compact set-up and low maintenance to ensure optimal service performance for our customers. The service rigs, pump and tanks, accumulators, blow out preventers, pipe racks, doghouses, boilers and other support equipment are all designed with the quickest assembly time and weight restrictions in mind for travelling on provincial roads throughout the different jurisdictions in the WCSB from the northeast British Columbia gas fields to the southeast Saskatchewan oilfields and all points in between in Alberta.

CWC's fleet is comprised of 138 service rigs: 73 singles, 52 doubles and 13 slant rigs. Depth ranges from 1,500 to 5,000 metres.
