At LR, we understand that sourcing and contracting a rig can be a daunting and challenging process, influenced by factors such as rig availability, operational status and stacked condition.

Whether you’re looking to contract a new build rig, a ‘hot’ rig or a non-operational rig that requires reactivation, we can help you successfully and cost effectively tender, select and accept a rig onto contract.

What we offer

Our rig intake and selection services cover the entire process from rig tender, selection and award to rig acceptance. As experts in asset integrity, operational integrity and well operations, we help you avoid costly project delays, operational downtime, safety risks and significant cost implications.  Market conditions are such that new build and hot rigs aren’t always readily available and instead you must consider a non-operational rig. A reactivation process can be extensive and unpredictable. We help you identify and address the technical and regulatory challenges so you can successfully and cost effectively tender, select and accept a non-operational rig onto contract.

What are the benefits?

  • Avoid project delays
  • Reduce non-productive time
  • Reduce failure risk and cost
  • Ensure regulatory compliance
