The first step to the successful drilling of a well


The company was originally established in 1986 to provide drilling and completion engineering to the oil and gas industry. Over the years our experience has been utilized by other sectors of the economy including mining, geothermal, CO2 sequestration and salt cavern storage wells. Whatever the project, our skilled drilling professionals use their years of experience to drill the well as efficiently and effectively as possible, while keeping the client closely informed throughout each step of the drilling process. 

An advantage to the small to midsize client is our ability to pass on volume discounts from service vendors due to our high annual activity levels. This also allows Codeco-Vanoco to provide better availability of equipment and services during peak times at a reduced cost to benefit the customer.
