Suriname Swamp Rig

Heavy Oil

Swamp buggy drilling rig completely rebuilt onsite in Suriname. Rig was set up for conventional rotary drilling in tidal swamps and modified for continuous 3″ wireline coring into PVC liners. Wells were continuous wireline cored, cores frozen and shipped to a Houston laboratory for analysis. Each well was logged by a geophysical wireline unit mounted on one of the carriers.
