The addition of these two rigs brings the Axxis fleet to a total of four barge rigs. Previously the Independence, a 2000 HP bay barge, was built and commissioned in 2002 and the Freedom, a 2000 HP posted barge was refurbished and put in the fleet in March of 2003. Axxis has also recently begun operating a 1200 HP land rig in East Texas.
"We are very pleased with the additions to our fleet in that it will better enable us to meet the needs of our clients. Also, these projects are consistent with our company goals of utilizing Louisiana based services and contractors", said Bob Dunn, President of Axxis Drilling.
In addition, John Stevens has recently been promoted to the position of Vice President, Domestic Operations. "John has worked tirelessly for the company since its inception and this promotion is indicative of our confidence in him", said Bob Dunn in announcing the promotion.
Axxis Drilling is based in Broussard, LA and operates its rigs along the Louisiana and Texas Gulf Coast.
