The Chairman's Corner | After Action Review


At Mercury we are focused on building a better Well Control Services Company. We are driven to bring the best of the best to our clients and engage in a sustainable and employee focused environment. We are building on the foundation of our predecessors and the pioneers that created the path for us. Now we are constructing the launching pad that will deliver the new standard in well control services.

While some companies are focused on their legacy, we are moving forward with technological breakthroughs and advances in engineering and industrial services. We are obviously not the biggest in the industry, this is not our goal. We are driven to improve our industry, become the gold standard and lead the way to the next level of service and quality in our business.

At Mercury we do offer emergency response services, though we are focused on supporting our clients through a more safe and secure environment by providing our consulting and industry thought leadership solutions to predict and stop events before they happen.

As our slogan says… At Mercury, we welcome you to the next generation of well control.

Mercury has the solutions to help you, all we need is a conversation. Contact us today.


Topics, Technology, and White Papers

One of Mercury’s core philosophies that relates to the “next generation” is that information, data and education are paramount in the evolution of any industry. Not only do we believe there are wrong decisions being made, we have witnessed them first hand.

Our goal is to provide insight and share the most current ideas, concepts and technologies that are in the industry. To that end Mercury provides a wide range of topics and information that we share freely with our colleagues, our peers and our clients. Look for our blog, announcements, whitepapers and technology info shares. These will be frequently updated and shared.


Oil and Gas Trends

At Mercury we keep our eye on the horizon and our ear to the ground. We are vigilant about identifying trends in our industry and staying ahead of the curve. These trends could show up in the market, in technology or in new advancements in processes or procedures.

In alignment with our commitments to share information and data, we are publishing our thoughts and ideas on where we think our industry is going and what we believe will have the biggest impact on our business or future. As always, we welcome your thoughts and ideas in this arena and would encourage you to engage with us in a conversation.

Message from our Chairman and CEO

When we formed Mercury, we saw a huge gap in our industry that was not being filled by the current landscape of providers and competitors. We believe that gap is in leadership.

There is a fundamental issue in the oil and gas services business. We keep doing the same things we have always done. We also keep getting the same results we have always gotten. Things go wrong and catastrophic events happen. Property is destroyed, people are killed, environments are devastated and investments are lost.

We all know the definition of insanity is doing the same thing you have always done and expecting a different result. At Mercury we are stopping the insanity. We are committed to driving a better way of doing business.

How? We are bringing the next generation of services to our industry. We are no longer sitting back and waiting for someone else to come up with a plan, define a strategy or solve the problem. We are taking ownership and we are making a conscious effort to change the way we do business in the energy sector.

While we depend on the history and knowledge we have accumulated over the years, we are looking to the future for the answers. We are asking the tough questions and digging into every possible solution to find the right answer. This is about being better, faster and smarter than everyone else around us. This is about outperforming our competitors because we have the best people in the industry. This isn’t just another company in a crowded field, this is Mercury Well Control taking the lead and building a better future.

Our team members have already helped numerous clients, from independents to the super majors. If you have had enough of the same message from every vendor in the industry, give us a call or drop us an email. You may be surprised by what a few fresh ideas and new generation can bring to the conversation.

Thank You, Chad Wilson
