Boart Longyear

Boart Longyear’s global drilling services and applied product development have forged industry-changing products and practices. For over 120 years, we have led the industry in productivity and safety.

Boart Longyear’s Minerals and Energy Drilling Services in Sepon, Laos passed a significant safety milestone of six years Lost Time Injury (LTI) free. In addition, the team has gone over two years and more than 1,000,000 man hours Medical Treatment Injury (MTI) free. This achievement is a credit to the supportive management, a supportive client, a committed safety team and above all, a drilling crew that has made safety a top priority.

Boart Longyear has only had operations in this area for ten years. Prior to that, the local workforce had never been exposed to the industry. The Operations Manager in Indochina said:
“It fills me with pride to see the results that have been achieved from both the Safety and Operational sides. This achievement should not be underestimated, as most of the workforce started out as rice farmers, but the commitment and willingness to learn has proven that most things are possible. This is a big accomplishment for even the most seasoned of drilling crews.”
