A Message from Our CEO
“One Team—One Family.”
This simple motto has guided us through 2020. At Deep Well Services (DWS), sustainability is not just about doing the right thing for the benefit of our environment, employees, customers, and investors. It’s how we work together in the face of such tremendous challenges at this unprecedented time. The Covid-19 virus has changed how we work and interact with our customers and co-workers. The slowdown of our economy has sharply reduced the demand for energy and subsequently our services. Still, through this challenging time, DWS remains steadfast to our guiding principles.
This year served as a testament to the tremendous work and dedication of our team—our family. We contributed to causes we care about, we invested in training, we created new services, and we expanded into international markets.
In 2020, we took the additional step to formalize our goals and practices into a comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. The result is our inaugural 2020 Sustainability Report.
Our strategy is clear:
• Focus on carbon footprint reduction and sustainability
• Focus on employee growth and community involvement
• Focus on integrity and our culture of excellence
This report outlines our commitment and dedication to this strategy.
Even though our work slowed in 2020, we focused on operational excellence and innovation for the benefit of our employees, customers, environment, and investors. Through our commitment to operational excellence, we have become the preferred service provider to the most successful and respected oil and gas companies in the world and have worked with our customers to stretch the boundaries of what is achievable through record-setting technical innovations.
We are extremely proud of our designation as American Petroleum Institute (API) Q2 and International Standards Organization (ISO) 9001 Certified Quality Management Systems (QMS). This exemplifies our commitment to continuous improvement while mitigating risk and increasing efficiency.
We established a competency-based training program that received accreditation from the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC). We also integrated advanced virtual reality (VR) technology that provides our employees with a state-of-the-art tool to advance their skills.
Sustainability coupled with our strong Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) best practices are activities we are continually integrating into our management systems and policies. I am grateful to our customers and investors, and I am immensely proud of our employees who worked so hard in the face of so many challenges.
