Downhole Drilling Services, LLC

A Short History of Downhole Drilling Services, LLC

In April 2003, three seasoned oilfield veterans, Kelly Hebert, Marque Angelle and Joe Lyons came together to form Downhole Drilling Services, LLC (DDS). DDS with its professional, highly dedicated, employees, have successfully drilled over 4000 directional and horizontal oil and gas wells for a broad customer base in various areas of Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico. .


The company's original headquarters in Lafayette, LA moved in 2007 to a new 27,500 square foot facility in SMEDA Industrial Park located south of Lafayette in Broussard, LA. In addition to our Conroe, TX office we have facilities in Porter, TX, Midland, TX and Tuttle, OK, which were established to quickly respond to our customer's high profile drilling operations as required.

Critical Decision:

Shortly after DDS's expansion upper management made the critical, key performance, pro-active decision to convert its entire mud motor fleet to the all new, re-designed "Superhawk" over-sized lower end bearing/transmission assembly. After considerable capital out- lay and implementation, reliability and durability sky-rocketed !! The over-sized bearing/transmission assemblies are now capable of withstanding the high-torque, high performance rotor-stator configurations typically run today.

And now our loyal, professional directional drillers and motor maintenance technicians have the absolute top of the line products available in the world today to proudly go to work and as a team accomplish numerous performance records saving our customers enormous amounts of time and money. DDS and its customers now routinely discuss our "lack of motor failures!!"

DDS Philosophy

Create a culture where a family of team players produces exceptional performance in an industry where safety and HSE are of paramount importance.
