CWC provides service rigs, coil tubing, snubbing and well testing to established oil and gas producers in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin ("WCSB"). These oilfield service activities are necessary to complete newly drilled wells and to maintain ongoing servicing of producing wells. CWC's services are provided through 2 divisions: Well Servicing and Other Oilfield Services.
The Well Servicing division is comprised of service rigs and coil tubing. With 69 service rigs, CWC is the sixth largest well servicing company offering the youngest and most technologically advanced service rig fleet in the WCSB. These service rigs provide completions, workovers and abandonments with depths ranging from 1,500 to 5,000 metres and are well positioned throughout the WCSB with operating locations in Grande Prairie, Slave Lake, Red Deer, Lloydminster, Provost and Brooks, Alberta and Weyburn, Saskatchewan. CWC also operates 8 coil tubing units to a maximum capacity of 2 inch coil and depth rating from 1,500 to 4,000 metres. CWC's Well Servicing division is well positioned for the changing demands of our oil and gas customers for horizontal drilling and deeper depth capabilities.
The Other Oilfield Services division is comprised of snubbing units and well testing packages. With 7 rig assist and stand-alone snubbing units, 6 of which operate at 5,000 psi, CWC is one of the larger snubbing companies in the WCSB.
