Gemini Class - Change this value to a strong SEO phrase

ORION’s Gemini Class of rigs is manufactured for the emerging horizontal shale plays in the United States. Some of the advancements on this new generation of rigs include multi-axis walking systems, a/c electronics, pipe handling systems, and more.

Drilling performance and technology is not the only benefit of our new Gemini rigs. As we developed the Gemini, our number one goal was to decrease mobilization complications. Contact a sales rep today to find out more about the weight and height of our rig during mobilization.
