Easternwell brings latest rig tech to Australia

Transfield Services’ subsidiary Easternwell is now operating the latest in drilling rig technology as part of a two year $42 million dollar contract with natural gas company QGC Pty Limited (QGC).

This rig has been specially built for high pressure and high temperature gas operations in Australia. It represents a major expansion to Easternwell’s drilling capability which has previously focused on shallower drilling for natural gas in coal seams.

The contract commenced late last year and supports QGC’s program to explore for natural gas in sandstone formations deep in the Bowen Basin.

QGC has contracted Easternwell to drill and appraise a small number of wells to depths of
5,000 metres. 

“Easternwell is proud to supply and operate the latest in well drilling technology as part of its contract with QGC,” commented Easternwell’s Chief Operating Officer, Tim Phelan.

“We will draw on decades of experience in well drilling to ensure high levels of safety and
productivity are achieved.”
