Testimonial

​“We were drilling geothermal wells in the French Quarter that required deeper and larger diameter boreholes from previous sites in that area. This was especially challenging considering our formation was essentially quicksand and there was no room for extra equipment on the site or in the street. We gave Derek Anderson the drilling objectives and formation conditions and he knew exactly what gear we needed along with its operational requirements. We credit DER with the project coming in under budget and on time.”
