Our drilling record is 2536m with 1 rig in 22 days on a single shift

Although our production is better than average, we still maintain good track discipline, our environmental control is above question, our labour relations and facilities for workers are top class and very importantly – our relationship with the land owners/farming communities on the land where we have drilled have been excellent and it will always remain a priority of Discovery Drilling and its employees. Discovery Drilling (Pty) Ltd is now a 51% black owed company and has a Level 3 BBBEE rating.
