Key Milestone in Company Development: Bentec Breaks into US Market

Major contract award already secured

Together with newly appointed US distributor, CAN Global USA, Inc., Bentec has reached a major agreement with North American onshore drilling contractor, Xtreme Drilling Corp., to supply significant drilling components for the upgrade of three of its new proprietary design 850XE land rigs.

The contract includes the supply of three Bentec equipment packages, each of which will include a 500-ton AC Top Drive, a remote-controlled Iron Roughneck as well as a new and specifically developed offline Stand Builder. All these products incorporate the latest generation of technology, delivering enhanced rig performance and increased automation through new remote control and monitoring features to meet Xtreme Drilling Corp’s aim of making the 850XE the fastest moving and most efficient 1 800 hp AC rigs for pad drilling in North America, when operations commence later this year.

Forward-thinking design and engineering

Bentec’s products offer the latest in technology and reliability and thus fit well with the demands of Xtreme Drilling Corp. Matt Porter, CEO of Xtreme Drilling Corp. said: “As part of the process for our 850XE design we evaluated many vendors for key rig components. Ultimately, no one was able to match Bentec’s combination of documented product reliability, integrated safety interlocks and forward-thinking design and engineering. We are excited about this relationship and look forward to integrating Bentec’s leading edge technology into future Xtreme rigs in the United States.”
