Our Contributions to Our Community
ESG is more than just a commitment to the environment. It is our commitment to our co-workers, family, and friends. Our people understand that the work they’re doing is serious and benefits the improvement of our society. Nowhere does this show more brightly than the contributions of our company and its people in our own communities. All of us at DWS share a deep belief in giving back.
We donated time and money to nearly 50 separate philanthropic organizations including:
- City Mission – Hope for the Homeless
- CO2 Coalition
- Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank
- I-20 Wildlife Preserve, Midland TX
- St. Barnabas Charities
- The Pennsylvania Challenge Program
- Women’s Center and Shelter – Adopt a Family
Deep Well Services has worked hard to prepare future generations of oil and gas industry employees. In 2021, we partnered with students from the CNX Mentorship Academy, West Virginia University, and Penn State University. These programs give students hands-on experiences that they otherwise would not receive in the classroom..
In December, DWS welcomed CNX Foundation’s #MentorshipAcademyStudents, in partnership with Evolution Well Services, as part of their tour visiting local oil field services companies throughout the Appalachian basin. These young people had the opportunity to learn more about the industry, future possibilities after graduation, and the chance to jack pipe on our Snubbing simulator.
In October, Kevin Goold, Training and Competency Coordinator, had the honor of hosting students from West Virginia University’s American Association of Drilling Engineers at our Training Center. The Engineering students received a detailed look into Snubbing operations and had the ability to practice on our state-of-the-art Snubbing simulator. They also had the opportunity to explore one of our 142k series units where they practiced using the jacks and tongs.
Kevin also taught a technical elective course at Penn State University. This involves 16-hour classroom sessions that offer a one-course credit to their student body free of charge to count towards a six-credit technical elective graduate requirement. The students received a detailed two-day look into Snubbing operations and had the ability to practice on our state-of-the-art Snubbing simulator that is customized to our equipment.
