NigerBlossom rig 101 arrives 1st quarter, 2010.
In growing our assets base and pursuing a fast track expansion, NigerBlossom Drilling Limited, a subsidiary of Tecon Oil Services has recently acquired a light truck mounted land rig. The NigerBlossom 101 rig was built in the United States by Stewart & Stevenson with an HP rating of 1000HP, 250 ton hydraulic Tesco top drive, an 11” x 10K rated BOP. The rig can drill to a total depth of 12,000ft with 5” drill pipe. This will ultimately position us as an indigenous drilling contractor, thus increasing our services portfolio. The rig is slated to arrive Nigeria, 1st quarter of 2010.
