Reduce Frustration when Invest in a Rig Refurbishment
Rig refurbishment before and after
Your rig reached the five- to seven-year mark, and you’ve noticed nagging functionality issues. As the seemingly unexplained issues continue, your driller grumbles more and your clients call with concerns. You find yourself saying ‘no’ to jobs, unsure your rig’s worthy of completing the work without a breakdown. Confidence in the rig’s performance – from management, driller, and clients – has diminished.
However, up to this point you’ve kept the rig busy in the field. It’s proven to be profitable. If so, investing in refurbishing its components and appearance could pay you back – and then some – and represent your company well again. Your driller may even prefer to continue operating their beloved rig rather than learning to operate a new machine.
Assessing whether to invest in a rig refurbishment involves not just a physical assessment of the rig, but also balancing future profit potential of a refurbished rig – and the driller – against that of a new rig purchase.
As you walk around the rig, do you notice:
Worn or weathered hoses
Rust or weathered appearance

Intermittent electrical issues
Diminishing performance of hammer
