Cliff Kennedy started working in the field in the early 1990's as a laborer in the pipeline industry, installing pipelines for gas, water and sewer. He excelled at this work and because of his expertise with equipment, he was given the opportunity to learn directional drilling.
Cliff moved forward in directional drilling, installing both steel and plastic pipelines. His first directional drill rig was one that had to be pushed around by hand.
Cliff moved around to other companies to gain more experience in a variety of fields. In 2005, a gentleman was inquiring around in the directional drill industry to find the best directional driller for an idea he had. Cliff’s name kept coming up. He approached Cliff with a proposition. The gentleman wanted to try something that had never been done before. He wanted to use a directional drill to place pipe under above ground storage tanks or ASTs.
Since 2006, Cliff Kennedy has worked for major gas and oil companies drilling under ASTs, while putting in leak detection systems as well as cathodic protection systems all over the nation as well as internationally. He has even installed cathodic protection under a nuclear reactor.
As one of the pioneers in this field, Cliff Kennedy has decided it was time to move forward in his own venture. He is bringing with him over 20 years of experience in running heavy equipment, directional drilling, leak detection systems and cathodic protection installations.
Cliff wants all of the companies that gave him opportunities to know how much he appreciates what they have done for him. He would not be where he is today without those experiences. Thanks to all!
