Driller

    I started drilling for CAZA Drilling in 1994, I have been drilling up until I started operating for Mountain States Casing Co. LLc. While I was a driller I logged -0- hours of lost or down time due to lost time accidents, and -0- hours of down time due to operater error. I have also been certified in:   Rig Pass Certification Well Control and Blow Out Prevention Certificatiion. Heart Saver First Aid and Adult CPR and AED Certification Master Driller Courses 1 thru 4 Certification. OSHA  'Occupational Safety and Health Administration' 30 hour certification. CDOT Flagger Certification.

Interest

    My interests are in furthering my education in the alternative energy field, not so much in the  wind or  solar energy field, but more towards geothermal energy.  That way I can incorperate what I already know and love with something new and helpful for the environment. I believe that we can all be a part of the green energy movment and we can be a better and a more efficient world if every one does their part. I'm also interested in  safety, and having a safe yet productive work place. I have taken a "Decision Point" course that was designed to teach people that lost time incidents are by far the most common cause for loss of business,  higher insurance rates and lower wages. In the oil and gas industry, any decision made could quite possibly be any where from $10000.00 to $500000.00, depending on the severity of the accident. Weather to man or machine the cost is to high. 

Summary

    I'm a very hard working and dedicated person. I demand quality and performance out of myself and those that work with me. I'm early to relieve the crew that I follow, and I believe in safety as well as production. Safety and production are the most important parts of the drilling industry and I feel that they must be implimented to the fullest. I also believe that on a drilling rig there is a place for every thing, so every thing should be in it's place. My motivation on this, is that if tools are wiped off and put back where they came from it helps keep the rig's cost down. I have always enjoyed this industry, I enjoy the work, and I enjoy the people, I hope to hear from you soon, if I dont, I will follow up in 2 to 3 weeks to see what your future employment opportunities may be. I will work any position from lead tongs to the drilling console. My total experience is  26 years. And I am very familliar with drilling procedures as well as safety and operational protocols. I would greatly appreciate the oportunity to work with your company, I believe that I would be an assett to thecompany and I feel that I have a lot to offer, and would appreciate the chance to do so. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I hope to hear from you soon.

                                                                                     Sincerely,

                                                                                                Bryan L. Bunning
