OIL & GAS

BRITISH PETROLEUM ALASKA EXPLORATION –

 

"SYNTECH helped us deliver the build-out of the Liberty drilling rig construction project and the Cold Heavy Oil Production with Sand process expansion on the North Slope of Alaska. Their direct oversight helped us achieve a zero incident goal and facilitated the delivery of the projects on schedule. They engaged our contractors with hands on approach that made them want to work safe and look out for each other which is why we didn’t have anyone hurt on the job. Their field safety specialists always had a professional, positive attitude and respected everyone individually. When they presented the safety meetings they were delivered so well that nobody would want to miss it and the room was always left to standing room only. Because of SYNTECH, everyone worked safe on my projects…..”

NEWFIELD EXPLORATION

 

“We engaged SYNTECH to help us optimize our Health, Safety and Environmental compliance operations in the Rockies District. Our focus related to safety leadership development and compliance efficiencies but also included auditing of field operations, processes, contractors and company employees. SYNTECH came in and immediately identified several deficiencies as well as missing safety programs we did not have in place. Their team helped us establish total safety compliance training all of our leadership members with an increased scope of work but ahead of their targeted schedule completion. The results were proven as we experienced an 87% reduction in our recordability rate over the same time period the following year. SYNTECH over delivered on my expectations and definitely changed our safety culture in a positive way….”

 

Mike Pontiff – HSE Regional Director Newfield Exploration


 

“SYNTECH worked directly with my guys and helped to make us stronger as a team. The training we got was the best I’ve ever seen because my guy’s attitudes changed and now they all want to be safe in everything they do. I appreciate SYNTECH helping me get my guys to work safe and giving them the tools to do their job safer……”


RAY HERRERA – Drilling Superintendent Newfield Exploration

 

 

“Today, we attended the Oilfield Safety Awareness program. The purpose of this message is to pay a complement to our Syntech presenter this morning. I felt that he did an excellent job in all aspects. He started and ended on time, and moved at an appropriate pace. The room was full, and as you're aware, there was quite a cross-section of "personalities". The instructor did very well at pitching to the middle, and also, dealing with the so-called hecklers.  Also, what made his presentation more interesting was the fact that he was able to remember several, probably more than 20, of the attendee's first names throughout the meeting. He kept things lively by injecting humor, and involving his audience in a playful manner. I've been in this business for over 30 years, and as you can imagine, I've been to my fair of meetings and trainings, and I can honestly say that today's was one of the more memorable ones. Kudos to Syntech!.....”

MOUNTAIN WIRELESS –

 

“Our entire safety program was severely lacking and we didn’t have an assurance that we were doing things the way we needed to. SYNTECH put our entire safety program in place. They audited our work activities, put together a total safety program and wrote our corporate policies and procedures. They also wrote our employee handbooks, they put together our safety committee and organized it and even gave us weekly safety topics to share during our weekly company safety meetings. They put our train the trainer programs in place and made sure we had everyone trained for work. As a result, we were able to pass our AT&T and Verizon Safety contract audits and were awarded a multi-million dollar contract with Black & Veatch. We are more than pleased with SYNTECH and have recommended them to everyone we know. Thank you SYNTECH for helping us keep our guys safe no matter where they have to work…..”

“I am blown away by SYNTECH’s safety services and the interaction they have with my guys. I have been through a lot of training before and it wasn’t until I met them that I realized I really didn’t get the knowledge I should have had. I’m required to make sure my guys are maintaining compliance and thanks to SYNTECH, we are confident that we are. They brought me up to speed with their real world approach and showed me the “black and white” of the regulatory expectations we are required to follow. Since working with them, our safety program has been the best it has ever been. I can definitely say our Safety culture has changed for the better and it will never be the same again…..”
