WDS Group has introduced their Earth to Energy concept designed to offer a whole suite of world-class services to the mining industry.
WDS Energy Drilling & Completions General Manager Declan Rooney observes that the mining business landscape is undergoing enormous change because of cost pressures. However, this pressure on Australian coal companies is sparking greater innovation within local service industries.
Controlling costs is a top priority in Australia’s coal industry; miners are therefore looking for integrated suppliers in a highly competitive market, which is creating a new opportunity for service industries and contractors.
WDS Group’s Earth to Energy concept offers a whole suite of cost-effective quality-oriented services, allowing mining companies to focus on their core business.
WDS Energy Drilling & Completions has for instance, recently introduced new drilling technologies and a seismic service, and also reviewed their cost structures to support the miners in difficult times.
Operations Manager Doug Henderson said WDS Energy Drilling & Completions found adaptation was the key to dealing with a soft market.
The drilling business works closely with other parts of the WDS Group providing pipelines, fabrication, gas drainage and field services to ensure a one-stop services shop for customers. The primary objective of the Earth to Energy concept is for WDS Group to be able to support projects from feasibility stage through development, production and site rehabilitation.
