Easternwell adds rig to Santos’ Eastern Queensland operations

Easternwell has signed a contract with Santos Limited to provide well servicing operations for Santos’ Eastern Queensland CSG fields.

The 12-month contract, valued at $10.4 million, will start in April with a newly refurbished rig.

To improve the operational capability of the rig, Easternwell’s workshop team in Toowoomba upgraded the carrier mast for Queensland road transportation requirements and installed an innovative new work floor to make the rig safer and easier to rig up and rig down.

Easternwell General Manager, Kyle Koziol said, “We are pleased to expand our operations with Santos in Eastern Queensland and look forward to continuing to provide safe and sustainable operations.”

“Through the technical experience and know-how of our workshop team, we were able to optimise the rig for greater operational reliability and efficiency.”

The contract has four six-month extension options.
