WE BELIEVE THE MOST ADVANCED AND PRODUCTIVE EQUIPMENT DESERVES A WORKFORCE TO MATCH.

At Ashton, we believe that a stable crew is a safe crew. To minimize turnover, we go to great lengths to create an environment designed to attract, train, and retain the very best people. Ours is a diverse team—men and women of many nationalities, offering a wide range of valuable perspectives and skill-sets.

Optimizing safety and efficiency, we provide extensive OEM-specific training on the latest, state-of-the-art equipment—the equipment our people will actually be using. Our people understand implicitly what the equipment is capable of doing, and can properly manage settings to optimize performance. The training is comprehensive, we can change our training and competency programs as needed to address new technology or requirements.

Rather than training employees to focus solely on the capability of the drilling equipment, we train them on how to drill a better well, using the appropriate equipment at its full potential. It’s a new and far-sighted approach that results in better work and better workers. As technology inevitably evolves, our people are better positioned to evolve along with it.

Many workers in the industry never change factory-default equipment settings. We train our workers to manage those settings and make the most of this advanced technology.

Beyond machine operators.

Our people are trained to not just use a tool, but to drill a better well.
