Why GDP for Consultants


Become More Than Just Another Drilling Consultant Through GDP

You spend a lot of your life at work. You deserve to be treated as more than just a number on someone’s payroll. Our company was built by former consultants who want to make the oilfield consulting experience better for you than it was for us. We treat you with the respect you deserve for the value you bring.

What Is The GDP Difference?

“Any kind of issue I’ve had, and there haven’t been many, I called and talked to John. He handled the situation wonderfully, answered the questions I had. Anything that was wrong, he made right.”

Craig Ivy

“They helped me negotiate an excellent day rate with the clients, to where – even after GDP took their percentage – it was a higher day rate higher even during the boom rates, which was impressive considering this is kind of a lean time.”

James Kinney

GDP Company Man

“Other consulting firms don’t have the downstream support. You’re hired by a company to do a job and that’s done when the job is done. With GDP, they do their best to keep you busy and support you on the job, as well as off the job and at future jobs.”

Kody Leigh


“There are a lot of things that a company should do, and GDP is the top of the list in all of them. I’ve only worked for three different firms in my 40 years, and GDP is top-notch as far as communication, pay, and scheduling.”

Tim Gray

“The best thing about GDP is the support. Steve Garrison and Cody Martin are top-notch. I’ve been in the oil field a long time and those guys are superb as far as support goes.”

Tom Dunn

GDP Company Man

“I understood that my interactions with GDP management were with actual, experienced oil field personnel. GDP wasn’t only concerned with the progress of the project, but with their consultants’ opinions and concerns as well.”
