Reduce Frustration when Invest in a Rig Refurbishment

Rig refurbishment before and after

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
  • Leaks
  • Rust or weathered appearance
  • Worn tracks

Have you experienced:

  • Intermittent electrical issues
  • Diminishing performance of hammer
  • Straining hydraulic pump
  • Overheating rig

If any of these scenarios sound familiar, contact us and we can talk through the best option for rebuilding your rig – and your confidence in its performance – to best represent your company. We work hard to stay ahead of the supply chain challenges, keeping common parts on the shelf. Our expert service technicians communicate throughout the process to keep you current on any situations or discoveries. We also offer two different options to address this level of rig wear and tear while working to accommodate your timeline and budget.
