SEDD Presented Plaque of Appreciation

Posted by Web Admin SEDD on December 3, 2015

When our President Todd Barton was approached by Aaron Goranson, father of a boy scout from Troop 993 in Maricopa Arizona, a small community just north of our Casa Grande facilty asking if we could donate a 53’ box trailer that was slotted for auction later that month, he said “make it happen”.

Rig BR 120; Charlotte, North Carolina

Posted by Tessa Patterson on August 5, 2015



Pictured above is Patrick Davis with rig BR 120 after a long day on the drilling site in Charlotte, North Carolina. The crew has worked its way through sand and solid rock in Greenville, Greensboro, Charlotte and Leland under the supervision of Caylon Silvers. Silvers says that while the 12 to 14 hour days are long and the environment is 95 degrees with a wave of humidity, “it isn’t anything the guys can’t handle.
