ECS has completed successful inland and international rig moves for a variety of rig types. We can act quickly and accurately to deliver fast pricing indications and logistics solutions for anywhere in Australia and around the world.
Australia has some of the most remote drilling pads in the world, with vast deserts and extreme distances. Day to day operational work for ECS includes deliveries to remote areas such as the Cooper Basin, Eromanga Basin, North Western Australia, Surat & Bowen Basins, and more recently central Australia and inner Northern Territory exploration regions.
Rig Move Project Management
We manage rig move projects. Specific rig moves require the following services in correct sequence: Load Planning & Management, Load Restraint Surveys, Road and Route Survey, Crane Lifting Services, Site Supervision, Contractor Management, Risk Assessment, OHSE. These are all implemented and managed strategically by ESC
Super Lift & Shift
We overview the rig move and nominate required lifting equipment to ensure correct handling of all items on the load list. We examine lift radius and distances and determine equipment requirements. Our clients have access to our super lift side loader machine which can lift and manoeuvre oilfield skids up to 18m long, 4.5m wide and 42 metric ton!
The unit lifts from four points and is safe with the ability to load and move equipment on and off road and incremental movements allowing for millimetre perfect spotting onsite.
Site Supervision & Truck Pushing
We supervise the rig move on site and provide suitably experienced staff to assist in carrying out the transport plan (truck pushing). This is done in consultation with the Rig Manager and primary contractor.
ECS will compile and report on the overall rig move incorporating all areas to enhance future services. Daily reports are logged and then compiled so the primary contractor can overview information such as: safety, contractor performance, load sequence, hours of work, client feedback & comments, load rates and daily movements.
