8 April 2016 – Dave Bennett

The Board of Directors and staff of Enerdrill mourn the passing of Dave Bennett. Dave joined Enerdrill at its inception as Health, Safety and Environment Manager, a challenging position for a new oilfield services company. During the three years which followed Dave successfully juggled the resources required for HSE, those for new rig builds, warehousing, offices, camps, hiring the right staff, winning contracts and building a reputation in the oilfield. This understanding of the practical requirements to manage a safe working environment and his connections in the industry was an asset to the consequential success of Enerdrill. Enerdrill’s impeccable safety record is also a testament to him.  Dave will be sadly missed by his work colleagues, Board of Directors and clients. We pass on our deepest condolences to all of Dave’s family and friends.
