Based on over 20 years of experience working with Yellow Jacket Drilling, we have found the company to be very reliable, committed in their approach to health & safety, and a trusted partner for environmental projects in the Western United States. The onsite drilling staff are conscientious, hard working, and make every effort to complete the planned drilling tasks on time. Further, we have found that when minor challenges arise, Yellow Jacket Drilling personnel work diligently and fairly to resolve the issues. Although there are other choices of drilling firms, our company continues to choose Yellow Jacket Drilling because we know the work will get done the right way.

Dan Blaes | FounderBlaes Environmental

I have been working with Yellow Jacket Drilling for over 20 years. In that time, I have had the pleasure of watching the operation grow from a small shop with a couple of auger rigs to one of the Southwest’s premier drilling firms that is well-versed in many drilling disciplines and has the necessary expertise to take on any challenge. While the operation has grown exponentially over the years, Richard and his staff have always maintained the principle that made them my driller of choice way back in the beginning - if something goes wrong, they will do what they can to make it right. Many of Yellow Jacket’s employees have come up through the ranks themselves, starting as rig helpers but are now working as managers and supervisors, and it has also been a pleasure to watch them grow and become professionals. Yellow Jacket has always provided the highest quality, piece of mind, and I have always trusted that I will get their best effort on any job!
