Cougar Drilling

Led by a highly motivated management team, Drilling has kicked goals since inception in October 2016. With long term services contracts in New South Wales and now Queensland, the Drill Team is looking forward to an exciting year. The business and current fleet of five drill systems will need to grow through 2018 to keep up with the demand.    

The design and engineering arm of the drilling business is also on track for a big year. Collaboration with some heavy hitting suppliers has enabled Drilling to offer the latest technology in drill systems, with domestic and International rig sales now on the table.

Quality, value for money and a can-do approach are reasons for Drilling's success … simple values for a business that's here for the long haul.
