Horizon Drilling

Horizon Drilling, a division of Western Energy Services Corp., has been operating since 2004.  Since that time the fleet has grown to where it currently is today with 51 rigs, making Horizon the sixth largest drilling contractor in Canada.  Horizon’s goal is to serve our customers to the best of our ability by continually improving our products through innovation, and strengthening our service offering by attracting the best and most experienced to our team.

Horizon operates one of the newest drilling rig fleets in the WCSB, with an average age of eight years. Seventeen of Horizon’s rigs have been built new since 2011, allowing the integration of some of the newest and most modern technology available. Thirty-five of our rigs have 1,300hp or greater pumps and have an optional upgrade to a 52,000 kPa (7,500psi) circulating system for optimal drilling performance.

Horizon Drilling has an in-house project management team that works closely with operations personnel and fabrication experts to design Horizon's safe, efficient and highly versatile fleet. These drilling rigs can include features such as AC power, top drive, dual fuel, automated pipe handling, automated cat walk, floor robot, hydraulic substructure levelling, hydraulic BOP handling and Range III tubulars.

Horizon’s newest rig is an AC Triple Pad rig with a depth capacity of 6,000 metres (19,600’) and a high-press circulating system rated for 52,000 kPa (7,500 psi).  A truly unique next-generation rig incorporating some of the latest technologies  available.
