Xtreme Drilling and Coil Services is an onshore drilling and well services contractor that works with exploration and production companies in the U.S. and internationally. Our company was founded in 2005 by a team of industry veterans with a history of driving innovation in rig engineering. Today, our fleet includes 14 drilling rigs and 8 coil service rigs which combine leading-edge technology with patented advancements.
Our drilling rigs are among the industry's newest, and most are purpose-built for North America's unconventional shale plays. With Xtreme's proprietary Coil Over Top Drive® design, our dual-purpose rigs provide the flexibility of drilling with either jointed pipe or larger diameter coiled tubing. We also offer the latest AC drive technologies, PLC-based controls, automated pipe handling and large-capacity mud pumps. Additionally, multi-well skidding systems and modular designs make our rigs highly mobile. Xtreme is currently drilling primarily in the U.S. Rocky Mountain region with rigs in the Denver-Julesburg Basin in Colorado, including the Niobrara Shale; the Williston Basin in North Dakota, including the Bakken Shale; and the Oregon Basin in Wyoming. We also have rigs working in South Texas in the Eagle Ford Shale and Austin Chalk.
Our growing fleet of well service rigs includes several that are being customized for deep horizontal resource plays such as those mentioned above. Once this work is complete, Xtreme will offer some of the world's deepest coiled tubing service rigs. Today, we have two deep re-entry coil service rigs operating in the Middle East.
With our in-house engineering department and commitment to innovation, Xtreme continues to introduce new technologies to the industry. We hold 27 patents worldwide for both drilling technology and transportation techniques that allow for faster rig-up and rig-out. Additionally, we have more than 80 patent-related applications in progress in the U.S., Canada and other jurisdictions around the world.
All our work is focused on the goal of providing deeper, faster, safer performance that raises your well productivity—and profitability:
