Rig 4 Mast Rebuild  (March – April 2016)


We recently took the opportunity to strip down and refurbish the mast on Air Core Rig 4.

The mast was:

  • Completely stripped;
  • Measured and tested;
  • Sandblasted and re-painted;
  • Re-built with all new components.


The outcome is a new lease of life for the rig. The drill crew were appreciative of the re-build with the rig already back in service and operating brilliantly.
