Drilling rig ZJ-20 is made by order of company in China with the latest technology and fully financed by foreign investment.

The nominal capacity of the installation is 120 tons. Engine power is 450 kW or 610 horsepower, tower height is 35 meters.
Rig imported to Azerbaijan in early August installed in the territory of "Ramana" field, where the well will be drilled. The company has already determined the amount of work for the installation. First, the installation will be carried out drilling on request of AzGerneft LLC. This year, two wells will be drilled for the company next year - four wells.

Director of Gulf Drilling Azerbaijan Ilham Babayev said that, before the order of rig the company examined all novelties: "As you know, all customers have their own requirements. We have conducted a survey among customers regarding their annual and long-term plans. According to a survey, it became clear that the installation of this type is necessary for us and all the requirements are concentrated in this model. That is why we have invested large volume to order a rig. It will be used for drilling wells in the field "Ramana" for AzGerneft LLC. In addition, I would like to note that in the future, this structure can be used not only in "Ramana", but also in other fields.
