Award for Excellence in Health & Safety, Northeast 2018

Awarded to: Deep Well Services


Judges Comments

“As one of only 88 service companies to achieve API Specification Q2 certification, and the only snubbing organization to do so, it is clear that Deep Well Services is going above and beyond in its efforts to assure safety. To be named in the same ranks as the likes of Halliburton and Schlumberger is a huge achievement.”

“The role played by Deep Well Services in the record breaking Outlaw C11H liquid rich natural gas well, drilled by Eclipse Resources, including a 122 stage drill out in June 2017 demonstrates the DWS approach to offering an unparalleled group of specialized oilfield workers that can move their project forward no matter the obstacles.”
