The contract, which was awarded by another major oilfield services company, requires SIMMONS EDECO to drill a series of onshore directional wells, with target depths in the  3,000 meter range.  The new wells are the first phase in a major development in Southeastern Mexico.

During the past few years, this particular operator has grown to become a major participant in Mexico’s burgeoning oil and gas industry.

“We welcome the opportunity to work for them on this new initiative,” said Niels Versfeld, Chief Executive Officer of SIMMONS EDECO. “The award of this contract represents a significant opportunity to further expand our operational portfolio in Mexico.  It’s clear that employing experienced engineers and crew from the local community is very effective, especially in terms of delivering outstanding service and performance. Once again, we are working in close co-operation with this valued customer to protect the environment and provide a safe workplace.”

The contract is scheduled for completion in early 2020, and is being supported by SIMMONS EDECO personnel onsite, and at the company’s base of operations in Villahermosa, Tabasco, which opened last year.
