Global Experience, African Focus
Our company focuses on the African markets, where we have been operating since 2005.
We have well-established operations across East, North and West Africa including Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Egypt, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and Tanzania.
We take the time to understand local regulations and customs in all countries we operate in. This ensures our activities are compliant and our operations considerate of local traditions. We experience improved efficiencies, faster project start up and smoother ongoing operations as a result.
Local Community Support
We embrace our role in the communities where we work and recognize the impact our operations can have on local society. We strive to develop strong relationships with these communities and build sustainable value in local regions by providing a range of support to residents, local communities and charity organisations.
In my experience of using the Capital Drilling teams over the last 15 years or so I can honestly say they have some of the best and most positively impactful social programmes for their staff and the communities in which they operate.
It is a comfort to know that your ‘contractors’ are just as focussed on developing and maintaining a project's social license to operate as the owner's teams are.
Well done again to Capital Drilling, setting the standard for the industry.
