The article informs that Premier Deep Hole Drilling MD Stuart Grant has emphasized the importance of the oil and gas sector. Based on the specialized provision of deep hole drilled and honed components, Premier's willingness to take on jobs and materials that other companies shy away from has continually reinforced its presence in this area. The company is now making a concerted move into offering value-added machining on the same workpieces. A wide range of components have been processed for offshore drilling and exploration companies and their top tier suppliers for wellheads, manifolds and components used for data monitoring and flow measurement purposes in drill head assemblies.
