Yes, you read it well. It’s been a while that I have been looking for a DD/MWD/LWD service company which could provide full range of MWD/LWD equipment and services in this world. But, up to now without any significant results. I am not talking about big players such as Schlumberger, Halliburton, Weatherford, Precision, Baker Hughes or even Pathfinders, because they are already in the league. What I am actually seeking is the service company which has invested a lot in the equipment and at the same time gained good reputation within the industry. A tough search for sure. The reason behind the search is that somehow the demand for this type of company is now increasing, especially in MENA region. Many users in that region have approached me asking for a recommendation. But unfortunately as I do not possess any current reliable data regarding this, I can not assist them that well. Sorry.
Thus, to bridge the information gap or asymmetric information we have (do we all agree here?) in the DD/MWD/LWD business, I’d like to raise questions and request.
Does such company exist? If yes, who and where are they? Are they willing to expand their business/operations to other regions in this world?
Please feel free to let me know in private or publicly by posting a comment below this posting.
BTW, as last note to this posting, I’d like to encourage all Directional Drilles and MWD/LWD Engineers/Operators/Technician all over the world to participate in this survey. I will disclose all information gathered from that survey when enough data has been collected. So far I only have few respondents and certainly need more input from you guys. 🙂
