RIG MOVE… MANAGED!  EMS has the professional insights to effectively monitor and manage your organization rig move(s)and forecast costs.

EMS digitizes the rig move process using SaaS Technology specially designed to create a flexible procedure that tracks the rig-down and rig-up electronically from stage to stage with daily re-caps to all management personnel.

EMS Coordinators monitor field equipment, rig-down, rig-up work flow and load assignment job status in real-time and load assignments, with location tasks as well.

Start tracking your rig move and service times for each job now!.

EMS’s Rig Move Management team encourages companies to utilize companies they are comfortable with or past dedicated truck and crane fleets to provide all the equipment necessary. But with the high turnover and low retention in this particular area of the industry please allow EMS to properly “audit” these companies with proper Transportation and EHSQ’s as assurance they can provide a safe, cost effective rig move.

In short… you know that the right people will see the right data at the right time.

Our management solution means that rig move task are entered as they happen – with an efficiency that means the end to missed opportunities, delayed paperwork and missing invoices.

Ask yourself these questions:

Are you exerting too much energy explaining to rig move transportation companies your expectations?

Are you caught by surprise when the wrong equipment arrives on location to move your rig, or worse – not enough equipment arrives?

Have you had to re-negotiate your rig move costs due to delays or downtime?

Do you wish you had a better re-call of the rig move timeline?

Have you had an incident on location and then find out the rig move company hired unqualified contractors?

EMS reports enable you to “drill down” into the details that can really tell you what’s happening on location.

EMS participates in the planning of the move, scouting the next drilling location and identifying any possible hazards or delays, thereby keeping every aspect of the rig move safe, efficient and productive.
