Rig Chase

Drill holes efficient and find precious hydrocarbons.

The Rig Chase™ Program enables the drilling rig to leave the well site after retrieving the BOP, reducing time on location and increasing the rig move weather window.








Our Rig Chase Program™ increases the return of capital invested (ROCI) by each well. Removing a non-value adding part of the drilling schedule to a low cost vessel improves utilization of a rig slot.
