I grew up in an oilfield family, which made the decision to join that career path easy. My after school and summer breaks consisted of me catching oilfield jobs when I could. I graduated high school in 1978, at which time I went full time into the oilfield.
During my 45 years in this industry, I have had the opportunity to work and operate several companies that provided snubbing, service rigs, pumping and rental services.
In 1995 I took a chance and purchased a rig assist unit; this was the start of Superior Snubbing Services. This company grew to be the first independently owned rig assist company in the United States. Bobby Joe Cudd purchased Superior Snubbing Services and together we formed Bobcat Pressure.
Platinum Pressure Control and Admiral Well Services gave me an opportunity to build 15 rig assist and services rig packages. Packaging the two lines together allowed for the expansion of operations in TX, OK, and the PA Marcellus market. This company was sold to Basic Energy Services.
After a short retirement, the oil patch was calling me back. Consolidated Wellsite Services was started in 2014. Our 12-rig assist and standalone units allow us to cover TX, OK, PA, LA, OH, and WV markets. Consolidated Wellsite Services provides the newest technologies, equipment, and experienced personnel.
I have encountered many people over the years that influenced who I am, for this I am truly grateful. However, the most important reward I have received is the employees who have made it possible for me to have this career. Their hard work and loyalty are the most important assets to Consolidated Wellsite Services.
Thank you and God Bless.
