OCTOBER 8, 1962 was the date vivid in Bill’s memory today after a year of negotiating with government departments, customs and shipping to get his very first 150 Calweld rig into the country and drilling, to start his career in the drilling industry. With no experience on any drill rig when the north westerly started the very next day drilling was halted as he thought it would blow the rig over.
Bill still loves coming into work and has many a tale to spin and can still recall bore details and projects over his career that would have Work safe knocking on his front door.
Stephen Pilcher (Director) and Shane Dale (Manager) run Washingtons Exploration now however Bill is not far away to put his experience on the table. We all wish the best Bill for years to come.
