my first rig package 

Precision Drilling International (PDI, and Weatherford Drilling International (WDI) in 2007 later) awarded Oilman Group 3 x 2000 HP SCR/VFD Rig package project in early of 2007 just before last boom in drilling industry.
I learned "
Ready to Drill" concept in rig pacakge project from Mr. Mike Simpon, SVP of PDI then, and Mr. Peter McCallum, Project Manager of Weatherford Drilling then. I lost big money from the project because of quality failure of drill pipe but gain friendship with Mr. Mike Simspon and Mr. Peter McCallum and delivered birth of Oilman International FZE in 2008 at Dubai.
