Essential Well Service operates its service rigs from eight locations across western Canada. Service rigs are used to repair, re-complete and stimulate existing oil and natural gas wells and perform completion work on new wells. They are typically operated by a crew of four or five experienced workers and include a pump and tank as well as blow out preventers and support equipment. Supplementary equipment such as pipe racks, boilers, light plants, matting, and accumulators for class III BOP operation are available.
All rigs are operated in a safe, cost effective and environmentally responsible manner, maintain COR certifications and are members of the CAODC. Several rigs are equipped with 42 10 draw works and 40 inch Kobelt disc brakes to handle the depth of horizontal wells. 5 × 5 fluid pumps also provide more output volume for better circulation on horizontal wells.
