The Crossing Company has nearly two decades of Canadian operations knowledge that has gone into developing our extensive rig fleet. Our rig fleet is safe, highly efficient and built to work in the vastly diverse conditions of North America.
The heavy rig category includes all rigs over 82 tons (180,000 lbs.) that use 9 meter (30 ft.) joints of drill pipe. These rigs are designed to complete extended length crossings up to 3,000 m (9,843 ft.) with final hole diameter up to 1,524mm (60 inches). Everything about this equipment is robust; drill pipe that ranges in size from 127 mm (5 inch) up to 200 mm (7 7/8 Inch), mud pumps from 350 HP up to 1,000 HP and the advanced drilling fluid recycling systems. These advanced tools and systems make up a typical TCC heavy rig spread and each rig is adjusted to fit the needs of each project. Heavy rigs require a minimum pad size of 40 m (131 ft.) x 60 m (197 ft.).
