About Us

Drilling. Coiled Tubing Services. Pioneering Rig Technology.

Xtreme Drilling and Coil Services is an onshore drilling and coiled tubing services contractor that works with exploration and production companies in the U.S., Canada and international markets. Our company was founded in 2005 by a team of industry veterans with a history of driving innovation in rig engineering. Today, we operate two fleets that each combine leading-edge technology with patented advancements: our XDR drilling rigs and our XSR coiled tubing service units.

Xtreme’s drilling rigs are among the industry’s newest, and most are purpose-built for North America’s unconventional shale plays. Our drilling fleet features technologies such as the latest AC drive systems, PLC-based controls, automated pipe handling and large-capacity mud pumps. Additionally, multi-well skidding systems and modular designs make our drilling rigs highly mobile. Xtreme is currently drilling primarily in the U.S. Rocky Mountain region with rigs in the Denver-Julesburg Basin in Colorado, including the Niobrara Shale, and the Williston Basin in North Dakota, including the Bakken Shale. We also have rigs working in Canada’s unconventional plays.


Xtreme offers some of the deepest-reach coiled tubing service units in the world. Our growing fleet consists primarily of units customized for deep horizontal resource plays, with technologies including an AC electronic injector head and proprietary PLC (programmable logic controller) system. Currently, Xtreme isproviding ultra-deep well intervention services such as perforating and frac plug milling in the Eagle Ford Shale, where we are setting new performance benchmarks for larger-diameter coiled tubing. We also have two deep re-entry coiled tubing units operating in the Middle East.

With our in-house engineering department and commitment to innovation, Xtreme continues to introduce new technologies to the industry. We hold numerous patents worldwide for both drilling technology and transportation techniques that allow for faster rig-up and rig-out. Additionally, we have more than 80 patent-related applications in progress in the U.S., Canada and other jurisdictions around the world.

All our work is focused on the goal of providing deeper, faster, safer performance that raises your well productivity—and profitability:

  • Deeper — Drilling rigs and coiled tubing units that are purpose-built for deep horizontal resource plays
  • Faster — Setting regional and world records for drilling speed and time on well while accelerating in-field moves
  • Safer — Technology that protects our crews and minimizes environmental impact

Xtreme's head office is located in Calgary, Alberta and we also maintain a headquarters in Houston, Texas. Our common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "XDC."
