WorldWide Drilling Resource

Thank You by Ronald B. Peterson Drilling Products Specialist, Mountainland Supply Company This month, I would like to thank Ronnie and her staff at WorldWide Drilling Resource® for continuing to provide an informative and useful tool to the drilling industry, and for allowing me and my fellow contributing writers to share our thoughts. Thank YOU for reading the articles and for your continued support through the years. The past couple of years in the drilling industry have been interesting, challenging, and rewarding. Drilling has been at record levels, supplies have often been difficult to find and all too frequently at a higher price than we are expecting. The challenges have forced us to be better at managing our operations to meet deadlines and stay profitable. The drilling industry is very adaptive and supportive of one another and, as a result, has continued to do well during these difficult times. WorldWide Drilling Resource® has not been isolated from the challenges. The cost of operations, paper, printing, and mailing have increased and, as a result, they have been forced to reevaluate their operations, and for the first time, charge a nominal fee to continue to provide you with this RESOURCE. If you haven’t already done so, please verify your subscription so they can continue to provide you with this service. The goal is to provide you with a valuable tool to help you run your business and stay informed about the industry. The various contributing writers all try to address your questions and concerns so they can provide you with information that will help you run and maintain your business. Please submit your questions to the appropriate contributing writer so they can provide the information you need. I hope you have had a successful year and can take a break and enjoy the holidays with your family, to recharge and prepare to meet 2023 head-on. I hope your holidays are full of joy and you have a Happy New Year. Thank you for all you do and for your dedication and support. In any drilling operation, it is always a good idea to get with your drilling supply provider and have them get with their vendor representatives to ensure you are using the correct products, in the correct manner, to ensure you maximize the effectiveness of your drilling operation. This will help you lower the cost to your customer, lower your overall costs, minimize environmental concerns, ensure the safety of everyone involved, and maintain your profitability. Thanks for reading. As I often say, “A man has to know his limitations.” Working together, it is amazing where we can go. Enjoy the trip! If you have any questions on drilling fluids or if you have another topic you would like addressed, remember this column is ours, help me make it of value to you. It needs to be an interactive tool. I need your feedback. Please send your suggestions to Michele (below) and she will get them to me.
