“One of the several benefits of having geological contractors as our drilling contractor on this job is for the first time in my career, I feel like I am on the same page with our drillers.”Sam Dashevsky, Northern Associates
“I want to tell you how much we have enjoyed hosting your drill crew this summer. We have had work crews in the past and were a little skeptical about taking on a drilling crew with all of the stories we have heard. I'm here to tell you that your drillers are definitely a cut about the rest. Each and every one of them we've had on the job here are fine respectful, thankful, kind, considerate, gentlemen. They are to be commended for the new image of the Alaskan Driller that they portray. I would welcome them back at the Lodge any time, whether on work or pleasure. Thanks again for hiring a great bunch of guys.”John Rusyniak, Log Cabin Wilderness Lodge
