IWS began constructing new service rigs in the fall of 2003. IWS implemented a plan for growth 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 the same year.
Rig # 7 went to work in July of 2009.

Rig # 10 was ready for work in January of 2015.
Our office and shop is located at 477 Devonian Street in Estevan, Saskatchewan. Our location positions us to be able to competitively perform work in the areas surrounding Estevan, Weyburn & southeast Sask. We also provide services to all other areas of Saskatchewan as required.
With our experienced staff that includes mechanics and welders, we provide excellent support for our operations anywhere in Saskatchewan that we would be required to work.
Independent Well Servicing Ltd. saw a niche for an “Independently” owned and operated, quality service rig operation in southeast Saskatchewan.
Our greatest strength is our people. They are absolutely our most valuable asset.
Combining a good management attitude with upgraded equipment continues to attract top quality crew members.
We have constructed some of the most innovative rigs in this area. Our rigs are double free standing service rigs with large rig tanks (35.7 m3) and 400 hp (127mm x 127mm) triplex pumps. Each rig package has a crane mounted on a support unit and a roomy doghouse with office space. Other features include electronic sandline counters, electronic pressure gauges, tank gauges and stroke counters on the pumps.
We have also added two Class III closing units with annulars, as well as mobile cat walk trailers to our equipment line.
IWS’s business philosophy is to manage our company and any growth around our people. This plan enables us to maintain our standards in relation to the highly experienced level of our crews.
We will strive to provide the best possible services to our customers.
Another top priority is to maintain the superior quality of our equipment.
We will continue to embrace new technologies on an ongoing basis to improve safety and efficiency.
Remember our motto...
Give us a call and use an “INDEPENDENT”!
