Falcon Drilling Burkina Faso SARL
Following requests from a number of prominent clients Falcon Drilling established a new West African operation center in Burkina Faso in 2011. The office opened in August 2011 and is located in the city of Ouagadougou. Operations initially started with two drills for our first client. Subsequently two more F3000 drills commenced drilling for a second client. The operation is administered by Mr. Douglas Karaz who is responsible for all aspects of the local drilling operations and support services. Falcon Drilling Burkina Faso also offers Geotechnical equipment for rental at competitive rates. We have HQ Packer tools and all HQ3 equipment for Geotechnical surveys.

Health and Safety Objective.
All of Falcon Drilling’s operations are governed by our corporate Health, Safety and Environmental (HS&E) program and policy manuals. Our health and safety goal is to eliminate work related accidents, injuries and illness, and promote health and safety in every client related task. Our HS& E program includes inspections to identify and eliminate unsafe working conditions or practices and control health hazards. Falcon Drilling also promotes a Safety Incentive program encouraging the active participation of all employees.
There are many instances where local conditions warrant site specific safety requirements e.g. high temperature working conditions, wildlife considerations, extreme cold, low water availability. These specific conditions are controlled through management supervision, pre-job site hazard assessments and safe work practices implemented to minimize hazards.
Regional safety training courses are conducted to ensure employees use safe working practices and are aware of the risks and mitigation measures applicable to regional conditions. Qualified instructors conduct our training programs.
Falcon Drilling adheres to all local environmental requirements. We ensure these requirements are met to the highest standard through the development of environmental work plans which follow the four principles our environmental management program “Prevention, Compliance, Conservation and Restoration”.
