Energy Drilling

Bertram Drilling Corp. ("Bertram"), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Energold Drilling Group is headquartered in Carbon, Alberta, Canada. Bertram is a leading oil and gas drilling services company providing oil sands coring, shot hole seismic and geothermal drilling services. Bertram also provides diamond and pipeline drilling services.

Bertram has built a solid reputation for exceptional performance over its 50+-year history, working for many of the most demanding customers in the world. The company has 20 full-time staff with peak staffing of approximately 300 committed to service your needs in the oil and gas industry.


In 2002, Bertram expanded into Canada's growing oil sands development and now operates one of the largest oil sands coring fleets in Canada. Oil sands coring requires the drilling of wellbores which are deeper than seismic drilling; but still relatively shallow when compared to traditional oil and gas exploration. Generally, the oil sands coring rigs are not required to drill deeper than 300 metres (1,000 ft.). The wellbores are drilled in order to remove a cylindrical core sample from the earth which can then be used by oil sands producers to detect the presence of oil and delineate their resource potential. Bertram. currently operates a fleet of twelve Ingersol Rand TH60's and four Schramms, which also conduct geothermal drilling in the off-season.

Each coring unit consists of a drilling rig, water truck complete with picker, and core shack with boiler and genset. These rigs are modified in-house by Bertram. A typical oil sands coring rig is staffed by three men per shift, with operations carried out around the clock, 24 hours per day.
