Calling all New Zealand Drilling Federation Members

 

Our new responsive website works on all mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. Also, we now have the ability to showcase more relevant drilling industry images throughout the site, so how it looks from here is up to you.

As an official Member of the Federation, your input is important to us. We want the site to contain vital information your drilling operation requires and finds helpful. At the same time we want the site to look good, so if you have any historical or interesting drilling images we would love to show them off. If you are going to send us any images, we do require them to be of a reasonable quality and size (they must be at least 1,500 pixels wide).

Email your drilling pics to info@nzdrillfed.co.nz
