These high performance, state-of-the-art land rigs will be manufactured at Bentec’s production site in Tyumen, using some high-tech components supplied by its facility in Germany.

The rigs will be fully equipped with the latest Bentec equipment including its recently launched integrity and optimisation software solutions, designed to deliver optimised drilling performance on demand. Delivery of the first three rigs is scheduled for 2020, with delivery of the remaining rigs the year after.

In addition to supplying the rigs, Bentec will provide the crews with full training at its production site in Tyumen and then subsequently support the field start-up.
