EDC currently operates the largest land drilling fleet in the CIS. Construction of new oil and gas wells on land is our largest business segment. Our total fleet consists of 261* drilling and sidetracking rigs.

We provide integrated well construction and contract drilling services. These services are carried out by our sibsidiaries, in Russia, by BKE through its main branches in Western Siberia, Timan-Pechora and the Volga-Urals and by SGC Drilling through its Western Siberian operations centres. Outside of Russia, these services are provided through BKE Burenie in Kazakhstan, BKE Turon Burenie in Uzbekistan and EDC International ltd. in Iraq.

Onshore drilling services include the construction of production, exploration and appraisal oil and gas and certain other types of wells, including vertical, deviated and horizontal wells, ranging from a depth of approximately 1,200 meters to some wells in excess of 6,400 meters.

Our land drilling services are contracted on either a flat-rate per metre basis for integrated well construction, or on a day-rate basis for contract drilling.
