We believe so strongly in having a quality of life in the oil field that we have rolled out a program that encourages our people to have fun in life and explore the world.
“Terra Guidance is a great company from within the oil and gas industry that has invested in maintaining a good quality of life for their employees. Oilfield work can be demanding, so sometimes you need to head out and find some Hawaiian waterfalls to relax! TG’s voucher program gave us the push we needed to pull the trigger on the trip this spring and spend some quality time away from home. Thank you for helping make this happen! ” Conan Godfrey
The Good Life!
“Terra Guidance has been a company that focuses on maintaining a quality of life while offering opportunities to accelerating your career within a demanding industry. Recently my younger sister and I made our way down to the Magallanes y Antartica Region of Chile and trekked, Torres Del Paine National Park. If you don’t climb the mountain, you won’t see the view. Thank you Terra Guidance!” Gabriel Rubio
Reaching New Heights
“Since Terra Guidance hired me in August of 2018, I’ve been afforded multiple opportunities by the company to travel abroad thanks to a great onsite schedule with a predictable rotation. From May 15-22, I was able to fulfill a lifelong dream by trekking up to the Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal and witnessed the most incredible sights I have ever seen on Earth, as a geologist and just as a person on vacation. I was guided by a Sherpa, Bikrum, who aided me every step of the way and showed me a great deal of the Nepali lifestyle in the Himalayas. It is a trip I’ll never forget. And I never imagined I’d be able to pursue a vacation like this at such a young age. Thank you, Terra Guidance, for the opportunity to learn useful skills as a geologist and to take fulfilling vacations during my off days.” Brendan Lomago
“I enjoy working for Terra Guidance because I was able to take some days off from work and traveled to Yangon, Myanmar to see my family. My wife and I visited the world famous Shwedagon pagoda wearing traditional longyi, walked around downtown Yangon and enjoyed the architectures of old colonial buildings, saw breathing sunset of the city, and visited UN Secretary U Thant’s house now a museum.” Nyun Hein
Lions and Tigers and Bears!
“On Thursday afternoon, I was able to take my wife and 2 kids to the Denver Zoo. It was our first big outing since our daughter was born in February. It was a very modest trip, but it meant the world to my wife and myself to get out of the house and explore a little. It was the first time my son has seen elephants and tigers and lions, etc. He was so impressed (a lot different than his picture looks!). I appreciate TG for the flexibility of our schedules, ensuring that we have a life outside of work, to truly enjoy all of our blessings. Thank you TG for all that you do in allowing us to re-center ourselves outside of rig work.” Joey Luce
“For my last days off, I took my girlfriend on a mini vacation around Florida including St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, and Universal Studios Orlando. Although it is hard working the long days and long hitches, this job allows me to spend my time off traveling and exploring in places that a conventional job would not permit. I like to spend each break from work on a new adventure, and I am glad that Terra Guidance allows me those opportunities. I plan to stick with Terra Guidance for the foreseeable future due to the freedoms we are granted in our days off. Thank you for being such a great company to work for; here’s to a future of hard work and extreme fun. Thank you all. ” Zac Strong
Sharks and Dinos
“I’m excited about the Quality of Life Voucher Program that Terra Guidance has. I recently used some time off to take my toddler to Orlando Sea Life Aquarium. Right now, life is all about sharks & dinosaurs.
I love that I get the opportunity to explore and spend time with family.” Alischa
Concert Road Trip!
“I took a short road trip to Birmingham last month with my brother and husband to see a concert by one of my favorite artists, Ruston Kelly. We were also able to stop by the Civil Rights Institute which was incredibly inspiring and saw the historic 16th Street Baptist Church. I appreciate that Terra Guidance gives me the time and flexibility to spend time doing fun stuff with my family. Not every company prioritizes quality of life the way TG does!” Sarah Verghese
“Terra Guidance provides me with a great work/life balance because I get a block of 10 scheduled days off every month. On my last off block, I was finally able to fly out to San Francisco to see my friends. I visited Golden Gate Park, Muir Woods, the Presidio, the Stanford campus, and had some great Dim Sum in China Town.
I walked about 15 miles every day including a walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, helping my team out with our global fitness challenge. Because I was able to actually leave the field and enjoy my days off, I returned to work well rested and optimistic about future trips I can now plan thanks to Terra Guidance.” Wyatt Wicks
“Working in the oil and gas industry can be quite demanding. It’s great to work for a company like Terra Guidance that allows its employees time away from the job to unwind and relax. I was fortunate enough to enjoy a week in Mexico watching one of my favorite bands and relishing the sun and sand this January!” Tim Bright
Quality of Life
“In January, after a hectic holiday season, my wife and I took a weekend trip to Hot Springs, Montana, on the Flathead Reservation. We stayed at the our-part-of-the-world-famous and historic (means old) Symes Hotel. There are four separate hot mineral springs in this town, and Symes is the only one with a hotel. There is occasionally cell service also, so it is similar to North Dakota and Eastern Montana, lol! It was a great weekend, no dogs or kids to worry about, and it gave us both a much-needed re-boot after the holidays. Thanks to Terra Guidance for starting the Quality of Life program and giving us the opportunity to take a little break from the day-to-day!
About 5 miles south of the town, the rock is a piece of bedded sandstone, and behind me are macro-size wave ripples left all across the valley floor; the result of a huge glacial ice dam bursting during the Glacial Lake Missoula event.
Thanks again for the vacation!” Pat Haley
“I enjoy working for Terra Guidance because I am able to travel to relaxing places with interesting geology. A better understanding of how modern carbonates accumulate provides a better appreciation of lateral variability in the Permian.” Shawna Gilbertson
Reliable Geosteering Specialists Around the Clock!
With ever-increasing drilling rates, real-time decisions are critical to your well’s success. At Terra Guidance, we handpick our geosteering specialists based on their proven field experience and geosteering knowledge.
Whether your operation runs traditional bulk gamma, triple combo, or azimuthal image tools, we have the skill sets and software to meet your needs. We work with each of our clients to design customized service packages that fit seamlessly into any drilling program.
We will assign a team of our specialists to follow your projects on a continuous basis. Our dedicated professionals are ready to maximize your production at less than 1 percent of total drilling costs.
Geosteering Expertise You Can Trust
Trust is the cornerstone of any geosteering operation, which is why client confidence is central to Terra Guidance’s business philosophy and practice. With today’s drilling rates, wells cannot be steered solely during office hours, and operations geologists cannot be expected to steer wells reliably around the clock in addition to their other job responsibilities. Terra Guidance can offer a range of effective and economical solutions.
Do you prefer someone on-site or need regular samples analyzed? We can provide highly experienced mudlogging crews that come with the cloud support of Terra Guidance’s remote steering teams.
