Work Scope




Liberty field - offshore North Slope, Alaska


Engineering, construction, installation and commissioning of the arctic-class Liberty ultra-extended-reach drilling (uERD) land rig. Liberty’s design and capabilities greatly reduce its environmental footprint and eliminate the need for offshore structures. The rig will develop the offshore Liberty field via an ultra-ERD well program with departure distances of eight miles, exceeding the current record for the longest well in the world.


Exxon Neftegas Ltd., operator of the Sakhalin-I project

Chayvo field - offshore Sakhalin Island, Russia


Design, construction, installation and operation of the Yastreb, an arctic- and seismic-class land rig. Yastreb's design and ERD capabilities eliminate the need for some offshore structures, pipelines and associated activities, reducing the environmental footprint. The Yastreb set a new ERD record in 2010, drilling horizontal wells nearly eight miles long. The Yastreb holds records for six of the ten longest ERD wells in the world.
