target markets south america
Target Markets – South America

Increasing customer demand for new cost-efficient rigs and technology

Expanded multi-well drilling markets in heavy oil

New tenders will lead to a dramatic increase in exploration and resultant development drilling on “spend or lose concessions”

  • 80 blocks were awarded in 2008 and 225 blocks are up for auction in 2010 in Colombia
  • 95 blocks were recently awarded at the auction in June 2010 with commitments to spend over $1 billion
  • Significant exploration projects planned in Peru
  • Large portions of these countries have remote access and lack the infrastructure necessary for the efficient transportation of drilling rigs
    • This will increase demand for Tuscany’s fleet of heli-portable rigs
    • New exploration drilling programs require small footprint rig equipment
