Drilling Season is Upon Us. Now’s the Time to Service Your Drilling Rigs

The snow has finally stopped and spring is on the horizon. Now is the perfect time to take advantage of the calm before the production storm and make sure your rigs are ready when your customers start calling. At SIMCO, we have the expertise and hardware necessary for maintaining your drilling rigs. Here are some recommendations for prepping your equipment for the drilling season.

  1. Inspection/Cleaning – Debris, moisture and mud can wreak havoc on your machinery and hide potential problems. This winter has been unusually cold and snowy, and these extremes can spell trouble. Before you head out into the field, make sure you clean your rig and get a thorough inspection.
  2. Tune Up – Topping off fluids and calibrating your equipment are all part of the service your rig needs to perform at top efficiency. If there are any issues with your equipment, don’t wait to get them fixed. Small problems develop into big problems and you’ll end up spending more time and money in the long run.
  3. Repair/Replace – Getting in early is essential to ensure you’ll be ready to meet the needs of your clients. Many manufacturers don’t carry a large amount of inventory and it can take time to get the parts you need. By getting your rig serviced early, you will be higher in the supply chain and can avoid delays that cause downtime when you can’t afford it.

No matter if you’re needing to repair a broken part, replace a worn part, or if you’re just catching up on general service items, now is the time to service your rigs so you can hit the ground running when your customers call.
