About Payzone Directional
Payzone Directional Services (PDS) has been delivering industry-leading service quality to our energy partners since 2006. The company launched initial operations in the Rocky Mountain region, and has since branched out to service all major basins across the lower 48.
PDS is a full services directional company, offering expertise in everything from Vertical Control applications to Multi-Laterals, and everything in-between. We utilize only the most reliable, cost effective and efficient technologies available on the market today. We own all of our primary Electromagnetic and Pressure Pulse Telemetry Measurement/Logging While Drilling (M/LWD) systems, as well as our Performance Drilling Motor (PDM) fleet. We purchase our technology from only the most trusted names in the industry, and we fully engage our suppliers in our business, a.k.a. your business, to ensure a continuous cycle of technology enhancement. In addition, just because we own it doesn’t mean it’s all we have to offer. PDS has long recognized the need for a diverse product offering to meet the challenges of a diverse market with a wide array of applications. As such, PDS has sourced and partnered with several industry-leading third-party technology providers to ensure we have the best fit-for-purpose technology available for the application at hand.
As is the case in any service oriented business, people make all the difference. We are dedicated to providing scheduled days off for all of our field professionals to ensure a superior workforce. We aim to attract and retain the best people in the business to build a culture that focuses on delivering superior customer service.
