Iceland drilling has made the finals of the Deloitte Energy Excellence award for Excellence in Health and Safety. IDC has in the past two years, along with the contractors they employ, completed 950,000 hours Lost Time Injury Free and significant injury free, while completing 32 rig moves and 26 wells.

The Awards provide an annual opportunity to recognise excellence and standout achievements across the electricity, oil, gas and petroleum industries.  Sponsored by Deloitte, this exciting event is now in its fifth year and is the industry’s annual black-tie gala event.

The Prestigious Deloitte Energy Excellence New Zealand awards night was held in Auckland on the 13th of August. Only three of the numerous companies that were eligible for the awards made the finals for Excellence in Health and Safety category, and Iceland Drilling was the only drilling contractor nominated.

This is a strong endorsement and recognition for the work Iceland Drilling has performed in order to ensure that we have systems and processes in place to keep our employees and contractors safe and to greatly reduce the possibilities of incidents on any Iceland Drilling site. Over all process and site control of all aspects including safety and environment is a key strength of Iceland Drilling.

“Our employees are our most valuable and important asset, we want them to return safe from work everyday”
