Moving Drilling Rigs

Your partner of choice for moving oil and gas drilling rigs safely from A to B with 20 years of experience

Transporting a drilling rig to wherever it needs to go requires attention to detail, accuracy and a whole lot of care and safety precautions. That's why time and time again we've been chosen as the partner of choice for oil and gas drilling companies in New Zealand.

PHL are the most experienced heli-drilling operator in New Zealand, with 1000’s of hours shifting rigs throughout New Zealand and Australia.

Our staff are experience, safe and reliable and our gear is well maintained.

The oil industry has taught us a lot over the past 20 years and we have implemented the oil industry health and safety culture and standards into our mainstream work.

An example of the work we have carried out is recently completing a geological survey, shifting coring rigs on Mount Messenger, Taranaki in order to establish a new main road route.

The six-tonne rig was owned and operated by Webster Drilling & Exploration and we shifted it a dozen times. Its modular design enabled us to fly two components in 900kg pieces and assemble on-site with the use of the helicopter as a crane.
