Letter from the President
I am honored to introduce myself to you on behalf of WellSentinel®, a solutions-based product line of Informa, LLC; designed to provide cost-effective technology solutions to members of the independent, small to mid-sized oil and gas industry. These solutions, once only available to the biggest producers in the oil and gas industry, are now accessible to our valued customers because of their affordability. As an entrepreneur, I wanted to help other entrepreneurs have the opportunity to operate their well-sites with the same benefits provided by these once costly technological advantages, but at an accessible cost.
I created WellSentinel® with great understanding and respect of America’s independent oil and gas industry. The independent oil and gas industry’s energy resources comprise 80% of America’s oil industry locations. The industry has the opportunity to provide the energy resources Americans need while helping America maintain its competitive position as a world superpower, all while further decreasing our dependence on foreign oil.
WellSentinel® recognizes that despite our industry’s importance, the industry faces great battles. Our industry produces these resources in an environment where there is great public misconception and lack of knowledge about the benefits of our industry. Our industry is also subject to political turmoil and its impending, costly regulations. WellSentinel® is committed to educating the public about the real truths of our industry, and how we benefit our communities and our entire country. While WellSentinel®’s solutions directly enhance the protection, productivity, and profitability of the independent, small to mid-sized oil and gas industry; it is with great pride for our company that WellSentinel® solutions contribute to the industry’s great role in America and the country’s position as a global energy superpower. Thank you for allowing me to introduce myself, our commitment to the independent oil and gas industry, and WellSentinel®’s solutions to you. We look forward to working with you.
