The LOC 250, Huisman’s first land drilling rig was introduced in 2005 and designed to take advantage of emerging Casing While Drilling technology to reduce the costs as well as the environmental impact of drilling a well. After a few years the demand for deeper / horizontal wells triggered the development of the LOC 250’s successor: the LOC 400 with a higher hook load capacity and the ability to drill deeper wells. To meet today’s demand for faster, more flexible operations in unconventional plays, Huisman has taken lessons learned from their previous land rigs and redesigned them to form the new InnoRig land drilling unit and 150mt trailer mounted rig HM 150.
Two of the most important features of the LOC are its compact size and the possibility to break down the entire rig into 19 modules with the dimensions of standard ISO containers. Read more.
The InnoRig is designed to better fit the needs of a drilling rig in modern unconventional plays. The InnoRig can easily be built up and move quickly between wells, either between single locations, or multiwell pads. Read more.
To meet today's demand for faster and more flexible operations in unconventional environments, Huisman has taken lesson s learned from operating our LOC series of land rigs and through discussions and interviews with operators and contractors. This resulted in a new series of highly mobile rigs, including a 150mt trailer mounted rig. It is safe, fast, reliable and easy to move: the HM 150. Read more.
