Nabors Drilling has been in the contract drilling business in Canada since 1952, and in that time we have become an industry leader in drilling deep sour gas wells and pad drilling. Through strategic purchases, as well as new construction, Nabors boasts the most upto-date fleet of rigs ranging from hybrid coil tubing/top drive rigs, to Programmable AC Electric (PACETM) triples and "fit for purpose" pad rigs. We market drilling rigs across Canada with depth capabilities ranging from 1,000 to 7,000 metres. Furthermore, Nabors Drilling maintains an inventory of items not commonly carried by most drilling contractors.

Nabors Drilling has 86 drilling rigs including ten state-of-the-art Programmable AC Electric (PACETM) rigs, and has several other rigs under construction that will be deployed in 2009. Our two heli-portable PACETM rigs are moved using a Russian Mi-26 helicopter capable of lifting 44,000 lb (20,000 kg). Nabors Drilling in Canada also operates nine coiled tubing rigs, with depth capabilities of 1,500 to 1,800 metres, and several more are scheduled for completion by 2010. These rigs will allow us to more aggressively participate in the shallow gas market and the Athabasca Oil Sands. While most of these will be deployed in Western Canada's Sedimentary Basin, they will also be used in the eastern provinces and northern territories.

RCCD Drilling

Nabors offers Reverse Circulating Centre Discharge (RCCD) drilling technology to reduce costs and water usage, and improve the well performance of shallow gas wells.

This technology reduces or eliminates wellbore formation damage caused by the conventional drilling process, and has applications in shallow gas, coalbed methane, shale gas and other tight, water sensitive formations.


Nabors is adapting this technology for use with our state-of-the-art hybrid coil tubing/ top drive drilling rigs. These quick moving, PACETM rigs are ideally suited to take advantage of the RCCD technology.

(20,000 kg) means that conventional drilling equipment can be flown to the well site. Drilling performance is not compromised by having to use specially designed light equipment to meet conventional helicopter load restrictions. With Nabors ever-growing fleet of moving system rigs, pad drilling is more efficient and safer than ever before. Nabors has four styles of moving systems to allow drilling on any pad configuration ­ the table top system, single piece sub umbilical system, swing-up sub umbilical system, and our innovative "fit for purpose" walking system, which can move the entire rig at a rate of one metre every two-and-ahalf minutes. This style of moving system has a tight footprint, which allows the rig to move around the entire pad and turn on its own axis.

all incidents are preventable are the keys to achieving an even greater number of injury free worksites. We uphold safety as our most important core value. To be successful and accomplish our "Mission to Zero" we follow a well-developed safety program based on our Ten Simple Values. Nabors has developed a comprehensive training program as part of our commitment to protecting people and the environment. Safety is essential to the way we do business and fundamental in our lives.

Through strategic purchases as well as new construction, Nabors boasts the most up-to-date fleet of rigs.

Heli-Drill Systems

Nabors fleet of heli-portable drilling rigs combines the efficiencies of our PACETM rig technology with a modular design to meet arctic requirements. The Nabors Heli-drill Systems allow year round drilling at traditionally winteronly locations, as well as access to environmentally sensitive locations where road construction is problematic. The systems are configured to use the Mi-26 super heavy lift helicopter, the largest commercial helicopter in the world. Its massive lifting capacity of 44,000 lb


At Nabors Drilling, we continue to make Health, Safety and Environmental Protection a priority. Individual and collective responsibility, and believing that

Nabors Drilling continues to lead the industry in safety performance and has received the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors Leadership award in nine of the past 11 years.

Academy Services is the manufacturing division of Nabors Canada. We specialize in the engineering, design and fabrication of all components of drilling rigs, as well as the electrical systems and programming of rig controls. Nabors developed Programmable AC Electric (PACETM) rigs equipped with proprietary technology that shortens the drilling cycle. Applied to both coil tubing and conventional drilling rigs, this feature allows operators to drill more efficiently and move more rapidly.

Our rigs have an advanced control centre that allows the driller to view all facets of the drilling operation. The instrumentation is within arm's reach, including the auto-drill touch screen and the driller console monitoring system. AC technology promotes improved motor and fuel efficiency, and results in fewer emissions, enhanced power distribution and less electrical noise. This causes greater control of torque and rate of penetration, which results in faster, better holes. Academy Services' extensive product line includes the commander line of Drawworks, as well as highly specialized walking rigs for pad drilling, heli-rigs for flyins to remote locations, and hybrid coiled tubing/jointed pipe rigs. PACETM pairs Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) on key equipment on the rig with the Pro-Logic Controller (PLC) giving the driller unprecedented seamless control over all rig systems. This provides fail-safe diagnostics as all data monitoring is integrated with equipment control through PLC technology. leader in innovation and expertise. This revolutionary technology was first introduced in Nabors' Rig 69, Canada's first AC drilling rig, followed shortly by Rig 83, the first "all AC" coil tubing rig.
