Nabors is an industry pacesetter. Since its founding in 1952 by Clair Nabors, our company has been driven by growth and innovation.

In 1963, we set the bar for drilling in Alaska, drilling the discovery well for ARCO in what would become the giant Prudhoe Bay Field on Alaska’s North Slope. We went on to drill BP’s first successful well in that field.
