DRILLERS

Drillers are as diverse a group of people as the industry in which they work. Despite this diversity, a drillers profile has the following basic characteristics; they prefer to work outdoors, they like variety in their work, and can work long hours, sometimes under adverse conditions. Drillers also communicate effectively with geologists, engineers, consultants and property owners to ensure an efficient and economical project.

Every drilling operation is different and requires a highly skilled person to ensure that the drilling process is successful.

 

CODE OF PRACTICE

We thoroughly plan the drilling operation to make the best use of available funds and machinery.

We observe and correct drilling practices that could affect job progress and report additional information to those involved.

We work as a team with geologists and/or engineers to ensure we provide you with the best advice on all drilling matters.
