“We continue to thank Trinidad for the amazing safe, efficient and effective work they perform for us.”

Trinidad customer in southern Manitoba and Saskatchewan, February 2018

"Excellent performance TDI-XXX team & other parties, appreciate your efforts to deliver this great achievement of best performance for TDI-XXX since joining the Ghawar field, exceeding all targeted KPIs (key performance indicators) and with ZERO NPT (non-productive time) for us.
Let’s keep up the team work spirit and focus on maintaining this great performance for the upcoming challenging period."

Senior Well Engineer – C&PM, Trinidad customer in Saudi Arabia, October 2016

I want to congratulate you on drilling in record timing. The well was drilled in 6.33 days real time from spud to release. This is the fastest well ever drilled by our company on land, and as it stands, it is the fastest well drilled in the Eagle Ford Shale ever, per Rushmore data. This is a tremendous accomplishment, and the best news is we know that it can be done even faster. Based on this performance and safety of the operation, feel comfort in knowing that you are the flagship rig and operation of the Eagle Ford Shale."

“As I read the morning reports, I noticed the attention to detail Trinidad Rig XX demonstrates every day. I was totally impressed as it really shows the pride they have in their crews and equipment.”

Senior Executive, Trinidad customer in Fort McMurray, Alberta. November 2015

I just wanted to take this time and congratulate you all on exceptional performance. To date this is the fastest RR to RR (11.83 days) for any well drilled for our company in the Eagle Ford. Rig xx’s performance has been exceptional all year and has improved its production performance by 14.4% from Q1 to Q3. Please take a moment and give our appreciation to the field staff that have made this possible. Without them our performance would not be what it is today. ”

“Boys based on our current good relationship and good performance to date I want to let you know our drilling rig supplier is Trinidad, period end of story.”

Vice President, Operations, Trinidad customer in the Cardium, Alberta. January 2014

“Through 68 wells this year, we’ve had approximately 60 less moving days, reduced our total rig release time by 1.5 days rig days from last year and decreased our trouble time from 2012. This all adds up to a very definite doing more with less. I want to congratulate Trinidad again for a job well done. Your company has made a significant impact on this milestone and we look forward to a continued productive relationship with your company.”

Drilling Manager, Trinidad customer in the Permian Basin, Texas. November 2013

“Attached is a time depth curve showing Trinidad Rig #XXX, Trinidad Rig #XXX and Trinidad Rig #XXX on their current pads. I want you to look at it and share it with the rig crews. Never before has performance been so good and consistent. I cannot emphasize enough how important this is to maintaining a fleet in NLA. You are truly leading the pack, and I am honoured to be part of this team.”

Drilling Group Lead, Trinidad customer in the North Louisiana. October 2013

“Congrats fellas!!
You have the new pace-setter, and you broke the 10 day mark. That well was done in 9.97 days normalized!! Send my congratulations to the crews, and go ahead and line up some catering for yourselves. You've earned it!“

Senior Drilling Engineer, Trinidad customer in the Eagle Ford Shale, Texas. June 2013

Having completed the first well drilled to total depth (TD) on the Wessendorff Pad, it is obvious that Trinidad Rig #XXX is off to an excellent start.

Looking at total footage drilled per day spud to TD, which effectively eliminates nearly all of the advantages of pad drilling, the Wessendorff well ranks in the top two pad wells drilled, the top two wells drilled in this area, either as a pad or single well, and the top five wells drilled to date by us, pad or single well. Furthermore, when looking exclusively at wells drilled with lateral lengths over 6000’, the Wessendorff well ranks first of all wells drilled to date by us, pad or single well.

Thanks for all the great work and for maintaining a safe and efficient operation.”
