Turnkey and Day Work



Big "6" Drilling Company is generally considered as having pioneered the "turnkey" drilling contract along the Texas Gulf Coast.

Many oil and gas operators appreciate the benefit of getting a well drilled at a fixed cost. In 1949, Big "6" offered its first "turnkey" drilling contract.

Some customers prefer to drill wells on a Day Work Basis. It also makes more economic sense to drill some wells under a Day Work Contract. It is the goal of Big "6" to drill under the type of contract that best suits both parties.
