CWC Energy Services Corp. ("CWC") provides drilling rigs, 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: Contract Drilling and Production Services.
The Contract Drilling division operates under the trade name CWC Ironhand Drilling and is comprised of 8 telescopic double drilling rigs with depth ratings from 3,200 to 4,500 metres with an average age of 5 years. 7 of the 8 drilling rigs have top drives. All of the drilling rigs are ideally suited for the most active depths for horizontal drilling in the WCSB. With an operational base out of Nisku, Alberta, CWC Ironhand Drilling is ideally positioned for the deeper depths of the WCSB.
The Production Services division operates under the trade name CWC Well Services and is comprised of 71 service rigs, 7 coil tubing units, 6 snubbing units and 10 well testing packages. With 71 service rigs at an average age of 7 years, 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 7 coil tubing units to a maximum capacity of 2 inch coil and depth rating from 1,500 to 4,000 metres. 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. All 5,000 psi snubbing units are equipped with the most effective egress safety systems that are above and beyond the established safety standards in the industry. CWC also operates 10 well testing packages ranging from 200 to 285 psi trailer-mounted pressure tanks and 18 metre freestanding flare stacks.
