General Manager – North Dakota
Inside Hess, that mindset of the independent spirit, it’s a “can do” attitude. We like to engage the entire organization to bring their ideas forward because people working together create absolute miracles.
Upstream Facilities Manager - North Dakota
We’ve had to learn and figure out better ways of executing our business when it’s being done at such a rapid pace.
Project Manager, Midstream Projects - North Dakota
The way we’ve always done it doesn’t always work. With the Bakken formation, we’re looking at new technologies, more efficient ways of constructing our facilities.
There’s so many pieces to this puzzle. It’s like an intricate machine.
Completions Operations Manager - North Dakota
We are creating an army of problem solvers, seeing the challenges, doing the work; come up with solutions.
We’re relying heavily on lean production, being more productive with the same amount or fewer resources.
There’s a lot of different groups and teams—we have to work together. This is an integrated process.
President, U.S. Drilling - Nabors Industries
Both companies work towards best in class. It’s been a great collaboration to share learnings and improve the operations.
General Manager - North Dakota
We’ve gone from single well drilling to well pad drilling. It allows us to eliminate waste associated with transporting rigs from one site to the next.
The amount of improvement, over the last three or four years, is just amazing.
From first concept to handing over a well to operations costs us over 14 million dollars. By reducing cycle time, eliminating waste, we have been able to get that cost down, because it’s incredibly efficient.
You can see a change in people. You can see the change in the organization. And that drives me to keep continually improving that process.
Everything’s possible. We can do it. It just takes courage. And when I think about where we’re going, that’s the cool part. That’s what gets me out of bed every morning.
Governor, North Dakota
Thanks to companies like Hess that have the vision to move forward with energy production, we’re going to see some great years ahead for our state and our country.
