Anthony G. Petrello, known to many as just “Tony,” holds a critical position at one of the most expansive oil and gas drilling companies in the world. Tony provides his leadership and extensive business acumen to Nabors Industries, which is based in Bermuda, as its President and Chief Executive Officer.
Nabor Industries’ involvement in the oil and gas industry under Petrello is incredibly comprehensive. The company is responsible for operating nearly 50 rigs, some of which are in close proximity to the United States where they operate in locations like Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico while other rigs operate in far flung locations that are spread across the planet.
In addition to having cultivated its ability to operate oil rigs Nabors Industries also has the ability to create the tools that oil rig professionals and companies can trust to help them get their jobs done as efficiently and as quickly as possible. The business of extracting oil can present risks to the professionals that are on the ground and engaged in this sort of backbreaking labor. To that end Nabor Industries works to ensure that the oil extraction equipment that it develops is designed with the needs of rig professionals in mind. The company has always prided itself on developing oil rigging tools that are among the best and most sophisticated tools in the oil rig marketplace. Nabors Industries has often set an example for its counterparts in the marketplace by developing tools like the Sundowner and Super Sundowner which improved the timeframes that oil rig professionals could begin and end a rig operation significantly.
