"A few words from our employees"


.

Jared Torgerson
Rig Manager Bonanza Rig #1


“I really enjoy working for Bonanza Drilling, since I started with the company I have found that management takes a real interest in the employees and interacts with them at the work site. They also take a pride in the appearance and performance of the rig, which trickles down to each of the hands on the rig, making it a very organized, clean and safe place to work. I also like the family type atmosphere you get from working for a smaller company like Bonanza, when you call in to talk to someone in the office they are very helpful and don’t give you the run around like some of the bigger companies. Since I have started pushing for Bonanza I have found the hands on the rig to be very well trained and take pride in the rig they work on, making it an enjoyable place to work for everyone. I continually get comments from the company men we work for about the excellent performance, great attitudes and the cleanliness of the rig. I think overall it is an excellent company to work for.”

What makes Bonanza Drilling stand out from our competitors is our positive work culture and user friendly equipment. Bonanza has an untouchable pride for safety, employees, equipment, cleanliness and efficiency (If you’re not first, your last). We have a great management team, which can always come up with a solution. The longer you work here, the more you feel like family.

"With having spent almost two decades in managing drilling rigs I’ve had the opportunity to see a variety of rigs and contractors. Unquestionably Bonanza is the best of the best. Cutting edge design, equipment and handling systems make the operations in the field, safe and efficient. With having some of the highest utilization rates in industry, it makes for a low crew turn over. This has allowed Bonanza to build a professional, diligent and experienced group of people to crew their fleet. Management’s vision for Bonanza, their stress on safety, regulatory compliance and their hands on approach maintains an excellent record of safety, performance and positive feed back from the Operators and their Co. Reps. in the field."

For the short time I have been working for Bonanza Drilling I have soon found that it is a totally different atmosphere to work in, compared to other companies I have been with in the past. Their close attention to detail on the rigs and crews eliminates a lot of the common problems that occur in most companies. Along with this comes a great deal of pride taken on the rigs by the crew members and rig managers because of top of the line equipment, steady employment and high safety ratings that Bonanza is known for. It is also a pleasure to have such highly professional office and field staff to assist whenever you need. I really enjoy working for Bonanza Drilling and look forward to continuing with them in the future.

"I joined Bonanza in 2014 after 23 years of experience in the industry and I am proud to say it was a great move.  The highly skilled and professional upper management made me feel like part of the team since day one.  The equipment is designed to be user friendly, safe, and built to perform.  If I had to describe this company with one word it would be "PRIDE"."

I started with Bonanza Drilling since inception in 2007. From the beginning, there were high standards and expectations set not only from management, but from the field hands themselves. Great equipment coupled with a proud and diligent workforce make Bonanza Drilling an ideal workplace.

Rig Manager Bonanza Rig #7


"I started with Bonanza in 2013 as relief manager for Rigs 1,4,5,6 & 7.  I was extremely impressed with the reliable & user friendly equipment as well as the great crew moral throughout the fleet.  In 2014 I was asked to manage Rig 8 and I am looking forward to working with a great team of people, both in the field and in the office.

"The commissioning of Bonanza 1 in November 2007 was the result of much research, planning, experimentation, and hard work. Since that time, Bonanza Drilling has never looked back. A company focused on building technologically advanced equipment with an emphasis on ergonomics, the end result is a safe and efficient rig design, which is very user friendly. This being said, the rig as with any tool can only run as well as its operator will allow. What I’ve experienced on these rigs is a unique culture of hard work, cleanliness, safety, pride, and camaraderie which has made Bonanza Drilling a great place to work. With the support of an experienced and diligent office staff, I foresee a bright future ahead for this company."

Rich Nagai,
Field Superintendent


I’ve been working on drilling rigs for 24 years and Bonanza Drilling is by far the best company I’ve worked for. They strive to be a high value performer in the oil and gas industry. They have top of the line equipment, which makes it safe, easier to work on, and very efficient. The motto for Bonanza Drilling is, “Performance and Safety without Compromise” and they stand behind that 100%. I look forward to many more years of working for this group of great people and excellent company.
