While CARE Industries has relied on the Series 60 for many years, the transition to the Tier 4-certified Series 1100 will have many advantages.
As CFO of CARE Industries, Peter Julien can attest to a service rig fleet’s impact on a company’s bottom line. “These are high-dollar operations. Downtime is costly—for the operator and for the well-servicing company. The partnership between CARE Industries, mtu and Wajax has resulted in a proven solution for our oilfield application. It allows us to be confident that we can provide a package for any customer that meets the emissions requirements, with worldwide support and reliable performance.”
A fitting introduction
And more service rigs are in production. All the hard work and teamwork that went into it was certainly cause for celebration. Yet the rig’s debut was made in less than glamorous conditions. Its startup and commissioning occurred in the dead of winter at a frigid -30°C (-22°F). Which, for the hardworking people in the oil and gas industry, and the industrial-strength equipment they count on every day, is a setting that makes perfect sense.
