Independent Well Servicing Ltd. supplies service rigs to southeastern Saskatchewan. We operate a fleet of 10 service rigs. All of our rigs are Class II Freestanding Mobile Doubles. We perform production work, completions, workovers and abandonments to any depth or complexity. We also have two Class III closing units, and two mobile cat walks with engineered pipe racks.

IWS is a proud member of CAODC (the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors). We participate completely in Enform's safety training program including obtaining our Enform COR certificate in 2008. We are also members of ISNetworld and Complyworks.

IWS began constructing new service rigs in the fall of 2003. IWS implemented a plan with a focused aggressive approach and by June of 2004 we were operating three service rigs. By the spring of 2006 we added Rig #4 to our fleet. We expanded further with the addition of Rig #5 in February of 2008 and Rig #6 in December of 2008. Rig #7 went to work in July of 2009 and Rig #8 was added to our fleet in April 2010. We added Rig #9 to our fleet in April of 2014. Rig #10 in January of 2015.

It is IWS’s business philosophy to manage our growth around our people at a firm and steady pace. This plan enables us to maintain high standards with the experience levels of our crews as well as maintaining high quality equipment. IWS will continue to grow at a manageable pace, and expand as market conditions dictate.

Our office and shop are located at 477 Devonian Street in Estevan, Saskatchewan. Our location positions us to competitively perform work in the areas surrounding Estevan, Weyburn and southeast Sask.

Independent Well Servicing saw a niche for an “Independently” owned and operated, quality service rig operation in southeast Saskatchewan.

Our philosophy was to construct some of the most innovative rig packages in this area, which include double free standing service rigs, large rig tanks (35.7 m3), 400 hp 127mm x 127mm triplex pumps, cranes mounted on support units and roomy doghouses with office space. Other features include electronic sandline counters, electronic pressure gauges, tank gauges and stroke counters on the pumps.

Combining these innovations with a good management attitude continues to attract top quality crew members who are always our most valuable asset and the life blood of our company.

IWS is proud to provide highly experienced crews, superior equipment and unparalleled customer service with the latest innovations available.

IWS will continue to grow at a steady but comprehensive pace. Our vision for the future is continued growth in order to service our customers as fully as possible. With this growth we can provide room for advancement and continuing opportunities for our people. We will embrace new technologies on an ongoing basis and strive to provide the best possible services to our customers.

Remember our motto...
Give us a call and use an “INDEPENDENT”!
