EXCELLENCE
To continually raise the bar to a higher standard. To be measured in the industry and by our competitors as the benchmark for excellence. To constantly improve in every aspect of our business. To be disciplined and do things well day in and day out. To be viewed nothing less than a premier, world class, top flight drilling company.

DEDICATION
Going to great lengths to make our clients satisfied and support our co-workers. It is all about doing just a little bit more than we think we are capable of doing.

PRIDE
Personal satisfaction. We feel and are part of something great and something special. Something that shows in our attitude and shows in our work. It is essential working to achieve excellence.

RESPONSIBILITY
Holding ourselves accountable for our actions. To make well informed decisions. To plan ahead and to have a back-up plan. To act and work with minimum guidance or supervision. To do what we say we are going to do when we say we are going to do it.

RESPECT
To go about our work treating people the way we want to be treated. We should be courteous, polite, professional, thoughtful, and seek to understand the opinions and actions of those who we work with on a daily basis. In a company that works in several countries in different languages, we will strive to be aware of social, ethical and ethnic backgrounds.

HONESTY
This value is the foundation for our existence. Although it may seem very difficult, we absolutely have to approach things from a truthful and straight forward perspective. Sometimes mistakes occur or things happen that seem to be out of our control. We need to realize our mistakes and to go about correcting things in the most honest and responsible manner possible. This is to gain and maintain credibility in our business.

CREDIBILITY
To build a reputation with our clients and employees and vendors that we are believable and trustworthy. If we give you our word, or make a promise, it is one that you know we will do everything within our power to make sure it happens.

Environmental Responsibility

We have to be leaders and stewards of protecting our environment. It is our goal and mission to control, prevent, minimize, and eliminate any environmental impact resulting from our activities. We promote full environmental compliance in all countries and all projects.

We take an active role working in rural communities where we operate to make sure that we responsibly care for the natural resources in the area including water sources.

We support and adhere to strict compliance with the current legal regulations. AK Drilling International has an Environmental Management Plan complete with policies and procedures for environmental concerns such as: airborne contaminants and dust pollution, hydrocarbon emissions of our equipment, water and drilling fluid usage, containment and discharge, solid and liquid waste removal, spill preventions and containment measures, and noise or permissible decibel limits of operating equipment.

Being an environmentally responsible drilling company equates to being a successful and profitable drilling company. We are certain that environmental responsibility and profitability go hand in hand and are part of our pursuit of excellence.

 
 

Occupational Health and Safety

Health and Safety comes first and foremost with everything we do in AK Drilling International. While it is may be our goal to be the #1 or #2 drilling company of every method of drilling we practice, there is absolutely no question that we are out to be the #1 drilling company in the world when measured from a health and safety standpoint.
