Helmer Directional, as we have done since 1965, puts our customer needs before all else. Our mission for each well is to plan and execute a reachable goal that is fundamentally sound and in the best interest of the customer. We work every day to keep cost in mind while giving our client a solid situation to reach their targets.

Proven Performance

The oilfield has changed dramatically over the years, but one thing remains the same, this is still a business of results! Helmer Directional Drilling’s experience can help you achieve your drilling goals.

Helmer has drilled over twenty-six million feet, (about 5,000 miles) of directional hole. This gives us unparalleled knowledge of all types of drilling environments and the particular problems encountered with each of these environments. Each well is thoroughly researched and planned in a manner to optimize time and reduce operating expense. Our field and support personnel average 20+ years of experience.
