Henderson to perform major rig refurbishment for Energy Drilling Company
August 9, 2018
Henderson, a leader in the sales and service of drilling rigs and capital drilling equipment, has entered into a contract for a major drilling rig refurbishment with Energy Drilling Company.
The contract includes the purchase and upgrade of a 2,000 HP drilling rig, an A/C top drive, three 1600 hp x 7,500-psi mud pumps, a walking system, 30-ft box-on-box substructure and a 1-million-lb derrick. It will be the first major rig refurbishment completed at Henderson’s new service center and rig yard in Houston, Texas.
James Lank, president and COO, Henderson, said, “The addition of this high-spec rig to Energy Drilling Company’s fleet showcases Henderson’s expertise in sourcing and upgrading drilling rigs and equipment. With new rig-up facilities now established in Houston and Odessa, Henderson is uniquely positioned to support the resurgent drilling market in North America. We’ve built a great project team in our growing rig services division, who will work closely with Energy Drilling Company to offer comprehensive support and services.”
Jody Helbling, general manager, Energy Drilling Company, said, “The rig has not been contracted yet, but we are confident we will put the rig to work in our normal operating area. We chose Henderson to perform the refurb based on the quality of their work, their ethics of transparency and honesty and their ongoing growth as a company.”
