What Is The GDP Difference?

“We know there are going to be problems while drilling. What GDP did well is that they found the cause of the problem before it happened. They were proactive in solving our problem before we were in trouble, so we didn’t have to be reactive after we’re already in trouble.”

Matt Warner

Kaiser-Francis Oil Company

“All of our people loved working with GDP. The entire GDP team did a great job and delivered as quick as you need it results, and to your specs or better. They provided completions engineering and logistics support for three wells we brought online this year, and they performed top notch work – generating cost reductions for our project. We absolutely look forward to working with them again.”

Chad Hillesland

Senior Production Engineer, Chisholm Oil and Gas Operating, LLC.

“GDP did a great job on our 2-mile laterals in the Permian. They helped us decide to pull a bit before it was damaged by constantly monitoring MSE in real time on the rig. BHA Optimization was modeled prior to the job and presented in a straightforward and concise format. These BHA recommendations were implemented via collaboration with myself and GPD and yielded successful results. They also helped us rotate our floated casing for our first time on our ERD wells by modeling actual wellbore and tubular attributes for the run and ensuring an agreed upon safety factor was maintained throughout the installation.”

Sr. Drilling Engineer - KFOC

“We engaged GDP as the Project Management team to drill and complete a pilot well, horizontal lateral and execute the completions. As a small independent operator with limited staff, we recognized the need to have a team with multiple skill sets and staff redundancy. GDP delivered experienced and competent personnel for each phase the operation. Senior staff with appropriate expertise in each discipline worked side by side with our staff to execute a SAFE and successful project from staking to pad construction to drilling and completions.

GDP was very interactive with our staff, listening to our ideas and recommending the appropriate applications and procedures throughout the process, as well as executing our specific requests. Drilling and completions activity is a dynamic environment and adjustments were made on the fly as needed to optimize the well. They helped us meet our goal to deliver a producing well on schedule, under budget and with a perfect safety record.”

Mr. Rock'n'Drill

Exploration Manager - major multi-national company beginning US operations with limited staff

“I had the opportunity to work with several of the GDP Technical Company Men on our Powder River project. Their insight and willingness to help was invaluable as we strove to cut days and costs and they became an instrumental part of our team. During the 2 year project, the team realized a 46% reduction in cycle times and 40% reduction in well costs.”

Sr. Drilling Engineer - Samson Resources II

“Up for the challenge, whether its a simple AFE or providing wellsite consultants to full on development project involving land, operations, engineering, economics, they can do it all.

Leaders on the job site with proven track record of safe and efficient operations.”
