Falcon Drilling Company, LLC announced today that it has purchased three new drilling rigs, adding Marcellus horizontal and Utica top-hole capacity to the existing Falcon fleet.
The three 250 ton MD Cowan Super Singles, which have been drilling Marcellus horizontal wells in northeast Pennsylvania, are mechanical singles capable of drilling multiple shale formations including the Marcellus, Fayetteville, West Texas and Barnett shale plays, along with niche work in the Utica and Eagle Ford shale.
According to Falcon Drilling President, Dan Donahue, Falcon is committed to helping customers solve their drilling challenges. This purchase is the next step on the road to bringing solutions to the Appalachian drilling market.
