"We incurred a serious accident in October 2011 that compelled us to try to figure out how we could jointly prevent these accidents from reoccurring and to learn what could we do to cut down on the use of manual tongs," said Leon Boyd, Noah Horn Well Drilling vice president of operations."Just like CONSOL, Noah Horn Well Drilling has safety as its top value in operations," Boyd said. "It's very important that our employees have the safety equipment they need to do the job as safely as possible. Replacing the manual tongs with the hydraulic tongs is a huge step forward in the safety and protection of employees working on drilling rigs everywhere.
