Terra Sonic International (TSi) is the recipient of the 2013 National Drilling Association Safety Award.

The award honors companies with outstanding safety records that are highly committed to safety standards.

"Sonic drilling is an inherently safer method of drilling than conventional drilling," says Bob Lauson, president of TSi.  "Despite that, TSi has never taken the benefits of sonic drilling for granted.”

The safety award will be presented at the annual Fall NDA Meeting on Oct. 9 in Mason, Ohio.

“We take certifications and training very seriously. This award underscores the commitment and dedication of our entire team," Lauson says.

Terra Sonic International, based in Marietta, Ohio, is a leading maker and servicer of sonic drilling rigs and services.
