Since the addition of Colby Baxter and Bryan Farley in our Denver Sales office, we continue to open far more doors and opportunities for both increased exposure and the growth of far more relationships with operators in the United States than ever before.
We continue to get our logo out there with upcoming sponsorships and our regular flurry of calls and meetings with possible future clients.
Although the drilling activity levels look to be static for the first half of 2013, we find many operators are looking outside their usual relationships to see how they themselves can improve on their current well costs and performance.
We are anticipating an upswing of activity starting June of this year, as many operators have pushed some of their scheduled project starts into May / June due to a somewhat “bearish” sentiment but also to alleviate land owner concerns, costs of well site construction and increased costs in our focus areas and weather delays as many winter systems continue to come and go throughout the Rockies, Mid-West and Williston Basin Regions. Gas prices are also still delaying some projects we are waiting to fire up.
All in all we continue to add contacts to our ever growing list of relationships.

AADE Technical Conference and Exhibition
On February 26th & 27th of 2013, Enseco Energy Services attended The AADE Technical Conference and Exhibition in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
AADE (American Association of Drilling Engineers) is a non-profit (IRS 501-6C), volunteer organization founded in New Orleans in 1978 and is made up of an affiliation of independent chapters licensed and governed by a National Board. Its mission is to provide the forum for the dissemination of practical drilling technology to those employed or interested in the drilling industry. This conference covered subjects considered to be improvements and innovations in drilling operations. This year’s theme is Horizontal Drilling and Beyond reviewing BHA/Bit Design, Drilling Fluids, Emerging Technology, ERD/Horizontal Drilling, Hydraulics/Rheology, Loss Circulation Solutions, Managed Pressure Drilling, Operator Case Studies and Wellbore Stability. It is held in Oklahoma City at the Cox Convention center featuring an exhibition area with booths, technical paper presentations and numerous speakers.
As a gold sponsor, Enseco Energy received the largest Exhibit booth space, four full registrations, prominent on site signage display, conference program recognition and recognition on the Sponsor Page.
Enseco attendees included Travis Ehman; Business Development Manager, Dean Yuill; Vice President & VP of Marketing & Sales, Colby Baxter; Technical Sales USA and Bryan Farley; Executive Sales USA.
Message from Business Development Manager, Travis Ehman:
“2013 AADE Drilling Conference had its best attendance since inception, including a large number of engineering students from numerous schools from Montana Tech to Colorado School of mines to University of New Orleans, and many in between. It was the Mid-continent Chapter’s most successful conference to date in regards to sponsorship and attendance. They originally booked for 600 people, but ended up expanding their rental space and had over 1,100 attendees. It surpassed our expectations for exposure of our branding. We were able to meet both new and seasoned drilling engineers that we would not been able to meet via cold calling as well as adding a number of new contacts to our lists of relationships.
All in all, it was much better than most trade shows I’ve attended over the years for actual conversations with engineers calling work.”
