Rig Operations

Calgary and throughout Alberta since 2001

Oil rig operations need water for several purposes, including:

  1. Drilling: Water is used to cool the drill bit and to carry the drill cuttings to the surface during the drilling process. The water also helps to lubricate the drill bit and prevent it from overheating.
  2. Production: Water is often injected into the reservoir to increase the pressure and push the oil towards the production well. This technique is known as water flooding and is used to improve oil recovery rates.
  3. Maintenance: Water is used to clean the rig and its equipment, including the drilling equipment, pipes, and tanks. It is also used to control dust and prevent fires on the rig.
  4. Living quarters: Water is needed for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and sanitation purposes for the personnel living and working on the rig.

Overall, water is a critical resource for oil rig operations, and the availability of fresh water is an important consideration when planning and executing drilling and production activities. We can not only all the water you need, we can also use our sister company to take care of all your sanitation needs.
