Tony Petrello is a genius: this is not some form of “hype.” It is an absolute fact. Anyone who knows the facts about the illustrious CEO, President and Chairman of the Board of the eminent Nabors Industries. Ltd., whole-heartedly agrees.
First off, during his earlier, academic years: Tony Petrello proved his skill as a Math whiz. He attended the affluent Ivy League University of Yale University. It was at Yale that Tony Petrello earned two degrees in Mathematics: one degree–a B.S. degree; and the other, an M.S. degree. He then matriculated to the east-coast eminent University of Harvard, wherein, he easily earned his J.D. at the Harvard Law School.
Tony Petrello continued his career endeavor, coming on board, as a member of the well-regarded firm of Baker & McKenzie. Baker McKenzie was established as Baker & McKenzie in the forties. It is a multinational law firm. It is rated as the 2nd largest global firm—on a worldwide basis—by way of head-count. Tony Petrello became Managing Partner of the impressive firm. He worked out of the New York office.
Tony Petrello decided to change directions, a bit, during the late 90s. He became interested in the oil and gas industry. He resigned from Baker McKenzie and came on board with Nabors Industries. He eventually became the company’s Chairman of the Board, President and CEO.
One of the areas, Tony provides strategy and oversees operations, is that of: Nabors’ land-based fleet operations. This particular sector of the organization is just one of many of its sections–as it pertains to the oil and gas well-drilling industry. The company, as well, manufactures products and provides the technology, necessary, to compete in today’s highly competitive oil and gas market. In other words, you cannot run a successful operation, within the oil and gas marketplace, without providing the client with the proper technology–technology that is highly advanced; and up-to-date; maintain a “heady” and reliable inventory of equipment, and provide, much, in the way of service–whether that service takes you to the coldest regions of the earth, or the driest and most unforgivable locations. However, Petrello oversees it all: with ease and a logical thought-process, that provides the company, much, in the way of continued success and prosperity. Tony oversees the following component–one of many-with regard to his leadership directive within Nabors Industries, Ltd.:
Nabors Industries operates forty-eight offshore rigs. The rigs are operated in the United States; the Gulf of Mexico, and Alaska. The offshore rigs are also used in nine other international locations.
Nabors Industries, leads, as it pertains to the platform drilling rig marketplace. The rigs are designed to easily withstand waves and winds. The winds and waves, each come, as separate environmental elements of Deep-Water drilling: offshore. The exciting news is: two of the company’s deep-water platform rig deployments (four thousand, six-hundred horse power) are the largest and most advanced rigs, in the category.
Nabors, as well, pioneered platform work-over rigs. The work-over rig is a servicing rig. Tony oversees the preceding operations and area, in addition, to all of the other areas–within the organization.
Nabors Industries, Ltd., which Tony Petrello provides leadership, on the whole, owns and operates, the largest land-based rig-drilling fleet—the world-over. The company is a significant provider of off-shore drilling rigs, within, the U.S. as well as within several global markets.
The company, provides its customer-base with directional drilling services. It provides the most up-to-date technologies to oil and gas markets, located throughout the world.
It wisely, leverages, its automatic drilling proficiencies, in way of providing customers, with a talented labor force. The company wishes to excel, in way of operations; subsequently, positively transforming the oil and gas industry—as a result. It is easy enough to see that no ordinary leader can take the helm of a progressive organization–the progressive organization that Nabors Industries represents.
It is Tony Petrello’s leadership that allows the company to move progressively forward. His role is to develop Nabors’ strategy on a long-term basis, with the objective to create value and prosperity for the stakeholder. And. . . not surprising, Petrello is a master in accomplishing the preceding objective.
