AKITA Aquires Xtreme; Fleet Increases to 44 Rigs for “Immediate Scale in US Market”
Akita Drilling recently announced a merger with Xtreme to create a “leading intermediate North American land drilling contractor. The combined company, which will operate under the AKITA name, will have a fleet of 44 high-spec drilling rigs with operations in major resource basins in the US and Canada.” On the job front, Akita lists available positions for Hands, Drillers, Rig Manager, Loader Operators, and more, and will assist with “immediate scale in the US market, building upon its recent strategic expansion into the Permian.”
A little bit about AKITA Drilling
AKITA Drilling Ltd. was formed in January of 1993 through a Plan of Arrangement with our predecessor, ATCO Drilling Ltd. At its inception, AKITA operated 26 drilling rigs in Canada. In addition to Canadian operations, AKITA also conducted drilling operations in the United States.
In 2000, AKITA re-established significant operations in Canada’s northern territories. As technology evolved, we were among the earliest adopters of pad rigs, including their use in the development of heavy oil and shale gas resources. This quickly became a market strength for AKITA, and today pad rigs make up approximately half of our deep capacity fleet.
