For Drilling In-Site, episode 32, hosts Jeremy Verdusco and Brock Yordy welcome Rob Meyer of Talon/LPE to discuss environmental drilling. Meyer serves as vice president of drilling operations for Texas-based Talon/LPE, where he oversees drilling and in-situ remediation projects. The company offers a range of environmental services deploying mud and air rotary, direct-push and other techniques. We discuss the latest in environmental, recruitment, driller cross-training and other topics.
“There’s something to be learned on every project,” Meyer says. “I’ve certainly bid on some projects that have put us in a tough position, but the way I look at it is every problem is a learning opportunity. If we’re not taking steps forward, we’re just going to get passed by someone else.”
This episode covers topics like:
- Finding drillers who can run multiple types of rigs
- Mud rotary drilling
- Adding sonic drilling to the fleet
- Weighing sonic versus mud rotary
- Recruiting from oil & gas to environmental
- How drilling contractors can stay organized
