This week, host Brock Yordy takes a question from Travis about how to progress from assistant driller to driller. What’s the fast track? It’s Ask Brock 163.

“Start asking questions, and if your driller doesn’t want to share, then just be right there in the middle of it. Get muddy. Get foam on you. Watch the cuttings come out of the hole and how the rig reacts.”

In this episode, he discusses:

  • Getting started in the drilling industry
  • Drilling rig maintenance
  • The importance of drill logs and keeping your own
  • Learning to drill under varying conditions
