The core of any service company is its workforce and Horizon's people are second to none. With over 200 employees, we have experience in virtually every producing oil and gas play in the country. We are unique among mud logging firms because we focus on providing professional field geology services that help exploration geologists in the office drill more productive wells.
The core of our workforce is a group of over 160 Loggers who are both experienced and highly talented at what they do. Over 85 percent of our loggers are degreed geologists, many of whom have their masters in geology or a second bachelors in areas such as petroleum engineering, chemistry or physics. Since 2010 Horizon has been one of the largest employers of geology graduates in the country. Our Horizon Geology Development Program is the talk of the industry and has rapidly made Horizon one of the most talked-about energy service companies in the country.
Having skilled professional geologists in the field dramatically improves the ability of the exploration geologist in the office to perform his or her job. The sophistication level of communication between the office geologist and Horizon is much higher than with other firms. Not only do our Loggers know geology, they are also trained extensively in communication and quality assurance to ensure they consistently produce exactly the information needed by office geolgists.
Adding to this core of degreed geologists is a cadre of the most experienced, professional non-degreed Loggers in the U.S. today. After the 2008 downturn, Horizon scoured the country to find the best of the best in the mud logging industry. These individuals' skill, experience, leadership and professionalism put them head and shoulders above their peers. Mixing them with a large pool of degreed geologists created an ideal mix of education, experience and knowledge that has catapulted Horizon to the top of the industry in spite of the depressed industry conditions of the past two years.
At Horizon we are focused on converting the mud logging industry into the field geology industry. Heard of outsourcing? Picture us as your outsourced provider of geological information from the field.
