Easternwell wins a new contract with Roy Hill Iron Ore

Transfield Services subsidiary Easternwell has been awarded a new Drilling Services Agreement with Roy Hill Iron Ore. The agreement is for the supply of dual rotary drilling services as part of the dewatering drilling programs, which includes the drilling and installation of production and monitoring bores at Roy Hill’s principal iron ore operations based in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The operation comprises a complex integrated system of seven inland mining operations. The contract is valued at approximately AU$5 million dollars and is due to commence in June.

The evident downturn in the market has given rise to an oversupply in drill rigs as a result of reduced demand. However, Easternwell has continued its successes due to its specialist rig fleet, the introduction of commercial and pricing initiatives that are production and result-driven, and also due to Easternwell’s capability, current performance and unwavering focus on safety.

Easternwell’s General Manager, Sheldon Burt, said: “We are pleased to have a contract with Roy Hill Iron Ore which will provide us with the opportunity to build on the excellent work we have completed to date in the Pilbara, allow us to invest further in our equipment and to continue the development our people.”

Easternwell specialises in providing industry leading drilling, well servicing and remote mobile camp management services. The company employs more than 1,100 people and manages more than 60 rigs and 35 remote mobile camps. Easternwell works with some of the biggest names in the industry including QGC, Santos, Chevron, Arrow Energy, Glencore, BHP Billiton and Fortescue Metals Group.

Transfield Services employs more than 19,000 people across 18 industries and 10 countries, providing operations, maintenance and construction services to the resources, energy, industrial, infrastructure, property and defence sectors. The Company delivers asset management services across all phases of the asset lifecycle, from concept and creation, to services that sustain, optimise and enhance asset performance.
