Easternwell mobilises new well servicing rig for Santos

Easternwell has mobilised a new workover rig for Santos in Eastern Queensland.

The 12-month contract is for 24-hour workover and completion operations for Santos’ coal seam gas developments.

The new rig is one of three recently designed and built by Easternwell at their updated facility in Withcott.

Easternwell’s General Manager Energy Kyle Koziol said the Advantage Light Rig Extra or ALRx is the latest in well servicing technology with integrated push-pull capability and a 50-tonne top-drive for increased rotary torque.

“The rig has enhanced hands-free operations and a simplified rig up and rig down process making it safer for our rig crews in the field. The rig’s versatile set-up allows for rig moves 365 days a year with no transport permits required and a 30% reduction in rig move times, reducing the time it takes to move between wells.”

“We look forward to demonstrating the technology and performance efficiencies of the new rig to Santos.”

Easternwell is a subsidiary of Broadspectrum (now part of Ventia), providing innovative solutions across the social, defence, property, infrastructure, resources and industrial sectors.
