    Hi – Greeting from Houston, Texas. We have many active pump jack oil rigs within 30 minutes of downtown Houston. There is also easy access to an offshore drilling museum. You get the same look without the helicopter ride, marine safety training, and the danger.

    Hi, from Inuvik, Northwest Territory, Canada. MGM Energy has rig drilling for gas on the edge of the Beaufort Sea, at the northern part of the Mackenzie Delta. Travel on an Ice Road for 180 km’s from Inuvik to the location. A winter operation only, will be complete before the spring thaw around end of April.

    In response to your request for oil rig locations, I have scouted and managed the location for a still shoot dealing with oil rigs here in New Mexico. I have attached a several photos in a separate email from that previous scout to give you an idea of what is possible in southern New Mexico. I will send subsequent emails with other photographs as well.

    As you may know, drilling rigs are hear today and gone tomorrow. That being said, a new scout would have to happen to determine what rigs are working or will be erected in the future to determine what may be available.

    A question I have is, what exactly are you looking for? Are you looking for oil “drilling” rigs or are you looking for pulling units? Also, is the client looking for working rigs or does the budget allow for renting a rig?

    The more info that you can provide, the more specific I can be in providing what is really needed.

    Please contact me at your convenience.

    Best Regards,
