We understand the importance of a motivated and experienced workforce. We strive to provide a safe, rewarding workplace to keep our employees engaged and looking forward to doing the best job.

Our Goal

At Komat Drilling, our goal is to provide our customers with efficient and effective alternatives for their drilling programs.

By utilizing our combined services – drilling and cementing of surface casing – customers will see immediate cost savings by eliminating many of the services necessary for Main-hole Drilling Rigs.

We eliminate the need for power tongs, waiting on cement, well site accommodations, casing bowl welding done on an operator’s timeline, directional services, waiting on 3rd party cementers.
