Before you can ramp up drilling, you need to ramp up pre-license applications

February 15, 2022

2022 is shaping up to be the most active drilling season in years. Are you challenged by the various applications and directives necessary for obtaining drilling licenses?

To get a drilling license, operators must provide accurate, validated data that meets standards set for various directives. Cutbacks in drilling departments have reduced the expertise and understanding of applying for applications, leaving some unprepared or understaffed to properly achieve compliance.
